At short notice, Jon Bracey will be unable to join the expedition in Nepal, although he will still be part of the team acting as Expedition co-ordinator and meteorologist from Chamonix, France. In his place, Pete Benson will be joining the climbing team for the attempt on the SE ridge of Annapurna 3. Pete has been climbing with Nick all winter and will make a good (but fatter!) replacement to Jon. Thanks to Jon for all the hard work he has done up to now to make the Expedition happen.
Trekking into base camp with the climbers will be Laura Benson and Ian Burton who will be filming and taking photos for Posing Productions who are going to make a short film of the Expedition. They will be staying at base camp for a few days filming before trekking back to Pohkara.
