Breedlove said that he did not believe that Russia was more prepared than NATO, but conceded that “we are not where we should be.

What could possibly go wrong? It aimed to provide a unique opportunity for Royal Marines Reservists to test themselves against the most austere and challenging conditions the Himalayas has to offer, using all the attributes of the Commando Spirit: Courage, Determination, Unselfishness and Cheerfulness. As it transpired, we would need to draw upon all these qualities and training to deal with an emergency situation high in the Himalayas.
The team was selected by a meticulous selection process; involving a written application, interviews, leadership tests and mountain assessment and training weekends in Snowdonia. Over the following days we trekked higher into the mountains, careful not to exceed m of vertical ascent a day to allow our bodies to acclimatise to the thinning air. We progressed well and even as temperatures dropped to , the team felt strong as we arrived in Lumde at just below m.
The next morning at 4am, 7 members making up the high altitude team left Lumde to cross the Renjo La Pass whist the remainder stayed to act as a support team. Carrying all our necessary climbing kit and safety stores our bergans weighed heavy on our backs as we ascended the narrow rocky mountain paths guided by the moonlight.

To proceed we would have to cross this and traverse across an unseasonably low frozen outlet from the tarn to descend further down the mountainside to Gokyo Lake.
We paused as Lt Peris Roberts AML and CSgt Chris Marlow ML1 proceeded to check the conditions; even with the midday sun the temperature was still far below freezing and the tarn had been frozen for several weeks so it was rock solid.
