Camp 2 established

We finally got the chance to ascend to camp 2 wich we set up and stayed overnight.Unfortunately I have had the runs,so did not get much sleep.I have also got an acid feeling in my chest which meant that I could not eat or drink much at all.A Mars bar and a little water was all I felt like.We have now carried up to camp 3 all we will need there.When we go for the summit we will leavee c2,climb to c3 and put it up,rest until about 9.00pm.the head up for the summit.We can see the summit quite clearly from c2.Now we are going down to bc,for rest and medical attention.Hopefully next time we go up,it will be all the way.The snow has been so heavy that we have to wake every hor to clear the vent holes in the tent.We are strong and ready.
