Friday, October 10th, 1997
Makalu ABC, 17.400 ft. (Per Bager).

We have now established Camp 3 (High Camp) in the altitude of 24.280 ft. The sun is shining from a clear, blue sky, the weather is perfect, and the whole team is in good spirits. We now have the options of climbing the summits of Kangchungtse and Chomolönzo in 25.067 ft. and 25.559 ft. respectively. But our primary goal is of course Makalu 1, 27.767 ft., and we plan to make the first summit attempt coming Wednesday.
