A mail just arrived from the Canadian International Broad Peak expedition:

Paul Walters and Mick Parker (both Aus) summitted Broad Peak true summit yesterday along with Jamie McGuiness and one Iranian member from the Field Touring Expedition.

Canadian team members Roland Hunter (GB) and Deb Robertson (US) and Dutch Menno Boermans, and Bob de Kort also made an attempt but turned back and returned to C2. Other Dutch members Frits Vrijlandt and Rozemarijn Janssen are in C3 and planning a summit attempt today if the weather holds.
