A Night at the North Col

May 14, 2013

The weather did not cooperate so after spending the night at the North Col,  Robert and the team returned to Advanced Base Camp.  A bid for the summit was deemed too dangerous due to high winds, cold temps, with the possibility of frost bite.  Instead this effort is considered a second rotation in preparation for the main event. The team will now call ABC home where they will rest and recover for the next few days and wait for a weather window.  This information was posted on the Altitude Junkies site early this morning.

I don't expect to hear directly from Robert but will monitor the main information sites for Everest and keep this blog up to date. Patience is a virtue that climbers must have in abundance! I am hoping and praying for a weather window to arrive very soon.

It is windy and 100 degrees here in Nebraska. Summer arrived today!

Best of Travels,
