We would like to have confirmed team members by December at the latest. We have maps and information on the possible routes, a draft itinerary for the trip, approx. costs for the climbing permits, logistics, basecamp facilities and flights. The costs don't include personal kit or the kit needed for the actual climb e.i. Mountain tents, stoves, etc.
However, I have just started a quest for sponsorship from different sources in the hope we can reduce the overall costs to everyone either by kit or cash sponsorship! I have already got one company, which has committed to cash sponsorship and have a meeting with them tomorrow to discuss details, amount, etc.
I will e-mail you all the info we have put together later today.
