Quick update:

Alan's lung infection has cleared up, he has completed the acclimatization, and is presently sitting at Base Camp awaiting the next weather window to proceed on up through the camps, and then (if all goes well) a summit bid, via the South Col. The weather has been crazy up there this year, but several teams were able to summit on May 13th.

Stay healthy and strong Alan
