You may have heard on the BBC news that 3 climbers had died while returning from the top of Everest and 2 others are missing. This is so sad and really brings home the risks and challenges involved in such a venture. Obviously we were very concerned about Wilfred.
I have just spoken to him and he is OK and safe! He is at Base Camp resting before setting off on the long walk back to Kathmandu. He sounded very tired and he asked me to thank everyone who had been thinking of him and keeping him in their prayers. He will write about his experiences on the blog when he has Internet access.
Wilfred hopes to come across to the UK in September to share the story of his climb.
