Hi its Paul at C3. Just a short update with some pictures and to also upload the Google Earth data. I’d be interested to hear from people what Google Earth looks like especially the route to C3.
As you hopefully have heard in the audio, it was a lovely day for climbing. A little cold in the morning, but then once the sun hit, it was beautiful. Just about to go to bed now – getting cold. Dinner was more salami, cheese & garlic.
I must say that the Jett heated vest worked wonders. The heat comes in your back and seemed to not be on the skin, but deep down. In fact it feels like it’s in your bones and in your spine. I could feel my legs heating up after a while. The great thing is that I could adjust the heat really easily, so it was like being able to take off and add clothes with the press of a button.
I will definitely be using the vest on my summit bid, and hopefully it will allow me to stay a little longer on the summit, assuming that I get there in good time.
