Sorry about the delay--I went out for a walk....back tracking Anders' progress.

Here is a spreadsheet that tracks his progress so far:

 They above tells you that they are coming up on 3 hours in elapsed climb time.  They have climbed 314 vertical meters, which is 36% of the vertical distance to the summit from C4.  At this pace it will take them a total of 7 hours to reach the summit--which put them there at a little past 9 tonight--a bit more than 4 hours from now....

Good progress.  A critical point will be whether or not they get past the Balcony, which is at 8380 meters.  Here is where, if the wind is bad, we might expect them to have to make a call about whether to proceed or not....
