Ice Fall Accident
There was a very bad avalanche accident about two thirds of the way up in the Ice Fall today. Many people are still missing. We are all safe here at our Base Camp. Four of our guys were up high when the avalanche happened, but were able to get safely back to camp. We are hoping for the best, but it looks to be a dire situation. We all heard it happen about 6:30 this morning Nepalese time. There is much activity in Base Camp as all the teams are trying to sort this situation out and rescues are currently underway. A very sobering day.
