Fortunately another window has opened so the Makalu team are presently climbing to camp 4. Once they get there, they'll rest in preparation for their summit bid starting tonight. It's a bit busy up there with lots of teams also climbing on the same schedule. Go team!
After days of uncertainty and unrest at Everest base camp, the Himalayan Ascent team can finally officially announcement that they're going home. Our guides had already decided to quit the expedition following the loss of our friends and teammates last Friday, but due to the growing movement to demand more protection and rights from the government, we waited it out to support our fellow guides.
