- The Team have
aborted their Summit Attempt. Dave called early this morning to let me know
that our team have decided to abort their summit attempt and are currently on
their way down back to ABC. The team were involved yesterday in assisting
climbers who were coming back from summit attempts in bad ways, unfortunately
some of the climbers from other teams have not returned.
It's extremely difficult to
express the disappointment for the team, all of which have dedicated the last
year to preparing for this. On the other hand, we have to admire the courage
that every one of them made the decision to turn around as they had doubts
about carrying on.
The team have asked me to
thank the Sherpas, who throughout the expedition have done a splendid job
getting everything in place ready for them, and the last few days the Sherpas
have been with the team, carrying & ensuring the team have been fed & watered
at each high camp. As the team descend, the Sherpas will now start the task of
stripping down each camp and carrying all the equipment back to ABC.
The team hope to be back into
Kathmandu on the 27th May and to the UK shortly after that.
I would like to thank every
one for all the support and kind words of encouragement for the team that we
have received over the last 2 months
