First morning update from Hillary’s father at 6.13am:

All climbers got up at 5am to get ready for breakfast at 7am. It is drizzling at this stage at 6am and all of us are praying hard the rain would stop before we commence the climb at 8am. The spirits of the 4 teenage climbers are high! We may have to wait for an hour or so until the rain stops. The first leg is 6km from Mersilau to Laban Rata where we will take a rest to prepare for the second leg climb to the top which will start on Saturday at 2am.
