Unfortunately Zac has pulled out of the expedition due to work commitments.  besides flying, Zac's otehr passion is film work and film making.  Right now he's working for WetaDigital in Wellington a place he's long dreamed of being.

 

Whilst I'll be a bit lonelier on the mountain, it will mean a great deal less to worry about in terms of launches, landings etc.  With me on the Mountain will be Siddhi Bahadur Tamang and Ah Mingmar Sherpa.  I've worked and climbed with these guys a few times over the years in Nepal and it'll be great 

Sophie Ward will be coming along to act as Basecamp manager and all round amazing type of person.  A small part of Soph's role will be to put out updates on the internet and pipe weather reports to us on the mountain by VHF radio!
