Sticking to plan despite the exhausting all-night climb yesterday, Stefi Troguet reported that the team left Camp 3 at 00:30am local time. About six hours later, she cheerfully logged in again from Camp 4 at 7,130m. The climbers are now resting before setting off on their summit bid tonight.

“We’re setting off at 1am local time,” confirms Sergi Mingote.
