Greetings from Thame at 3794m and second Everest Diary is published yesterday in the Irish Times

It snowed last night and when I woke this morning I hiked up to the nearest pass to get mobile coverage and download some email. The view of Thame covered in snow with the morning light peering in was captivating.


Access to internet and 3G are widely reported in the media to be fully accessible everywhere in the Khumbu all the way to and including base camp. I always took this with a pinch of salt and this has now been confirmed. From today I expect we’ll be completely out of touch for a few days so feel free to follow us on

Was also delighted to see my latest Everest diary published in the Irish Times. Can’t see it online yet so will circulate the link when I get it but can also check it out here:
