The team got down to Camp 2 around 9pm this evening after a very windy morning at the S. Col today. They wanted to get out of there early this morning, but were a bit pinned down due to high winds and gusts of over 50 mph. Our team is all good and everyone including our Sherpa staff is safe and sound at C2 now while the winds rage above. They will probably take tomorrow to rest at C2 and then get an early start to Everest Base Camp the following morning.
Jacob reported that there were many tents destroyed up at the S. Col during this storm, but our gear all hung in there and everyone and all the gear is down to C2!
Here’s Jacob, calling in from Camp 2!
