Reports from Everest ABC tonight, Chinese time, were extremely concerning. Reports are that
ropes from about 7200 meters down were cut or
pulled from Everest North side including the North Col. Several climbers are
still up high on the mountain. At least 7 climbers are at high camp on Summit
attempts. Members of 4 or more teams are believed to be above the North col.
It is unclear if ropes above 7200 meters were
pulled or cut. It is unclear if this is a case of people removing what they
bought to Everest, or what...
Our climbers on the Mallory and Irvine
expedition, descended the North col of Everest without fixed ropes, as the
ropes were "gone". We had enough rope and skill that we were able to descend
All of climbers are fine, and back at ABC. Our climbers were
able to install a few hundred meters of rope on the North col, while
descending the North col! Hopefully this will be enough for other climber to
make it down.
Several others climbers are spread from the North col, up to
the Summit... It is clear everyone on Everest needs to be responsible
for themselves, and not depend on others in any way.
We asked our climbers yesterday to end their mission and
search for the Bulgarian climber, Mariana Maslarova, "in case she was missing"
and any others who might have been up high and needed help.
Our climbers found a climber at high camp at 8300 meters who
needed help. They bought the climber down to the North col, which took a huge
amount of time and effort. We were told the climber was Russian, however,
nationalities sometimes get confused up high on Everest. The climber is
currently at the North col.
