We had a somewhat surprising development over the past 36 hours. The small April 29th team has decided to turn back and not make a summit push. There have been numerous factors that have resulted in this decision, including weather, health and team dynamics.
Jason Gross has decided to remain at the 14,200′ camp in the company of our May 6th team. He will continue his efforts to make a summit bid, while the other three climbers descend back to Base Camp. We’ll post a recap on the events of the last 24 hours after the guides return to Anchorage.
