Moving Up to Camp 4

Oxygen

Today Sherpas from several teams are working on fixing the route from Camp 4 (the South Col) to the Balcony. Tomorrow they hope to complete the route from the Balcony to the Summit. Winds look reasonable the next few days so after the 10th I imagine some teams will be making their attempts from Camp 4, there is a good period of low winds from the 11th to the 13th currently.
