exhausting summit attempt from high camp at around 5700mts, starting at 1am after a sleepless night with temp dropping to around -25 celcius, close to serac avalanche! 3 litre bottle of water froze solid so v little to drink, resulting headache following day. Arrived at summit 30 mins before sunrise, beautiful! Very long day returning to high camp, packing and returning to base.
