Yesterday the team managed to establish an advanced camp after an exhausting 5 hour hike with heavy 25+kg packs.  Advanced camp is located at 5500m elevation (N 33.114, E 92.048) 5km further up the glacier from basecamp. Today they planned to do an acclimatisation climb on a small nearby peak and scope out a possible route to the  summit of the Dragons Tooth.  David mentioned they may try and cross from the current glacial system where they are located under the North West face of the Dragons tooth to the adjacent glacial system further south named ‘Dongkemadi’.  From here access to the east ridge may give them a line to the summit.

The 6 day weather forecast is attached below,  The weather Sunday to Monday looks unsettled with a clearance happening on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday.  This timing could potentially work out well for there summit push.
