Annual Fund

I'm excited to say that we have been given a grant of £2000 by the Queen's University Belfast Annual Fund.
The Annual Fund raises money for projects that have a positive impact on the student experience, and we are privileged to receive this support.

Elsewhere, Conor had an interview last week with the Mount Everest Foundation for a grant, and an equipment list is nearly ready.
Vladimir has also prepared a draft diet for the trip - something we should probably test out beforehand!
It's available here, for anyone who is interested.

Finally, for some inspiration, below are some photos (courtesy of the 2010 Polish Expedition) of some of the  peaks in the Dzhirnagaktu valley. The unclimbed face in the first picture particularly stands out to me...
