Expedition leader to miss summit push

I spent the day drying equipment from the jungle trek as well as rehydrating myself in order to be fit for the summit push after midnight.

After lunch, our expedition leader Meldy informs us that he had also been having stomach problems since day three and would not be joining us for the summit push.

This left our team of five climbers with only one guide, Poxy, which meant that if any of us had a problem on the summit day, everyone needed to return to the base camp, which put everyone on the edge.
