Thanks everyone for your entries into the competition. It certainly gave us something to talk about with people on our way down. Not so much the answers, but that in going through all the entries, we didn’t get any that were in agreement on the boiling point of water at 6400m!
Some of entries were a little too complicated for us to comprehend in the rarified air of camp 4 & 2. Even at base camp, Jacci J’s entry needs a science degree to begin to make any sense of it!
I think that Brad Bond & Tim Kirk sound the most confident in their answers, however they vary in the boil point (F & C problem?) and are contradictory if the freezing point is greater or lower than 0C. It would be great if they could provide us with an answer that was in agreement!
Many Thanks, Paul & Fiona
