Everest Camp 4

Hello everyone,

I have been receiving DeLorme text messages from Robert.  Things are happening fast on the mountain.  We have been praying for a miracle and I think it just happened a few minutes ago.
Robert is making his decision to proceed or turn back as I am writing this post.

Elevation:  25,928 ft., 7:07 a.m. CDT   "My climb is over.  I've never suffered like this.  2 big days to get to base camp then relax & warm."

Elevation:  25,893ft., 7:51 a.m. CDT    "We are wet and cold with wind up to 85 mph. I'm in a 3 man tent with 3 Sherpa. No sleep tonight."

Elevation:  25,893 ft., 8:36 a.m. CDT   "The wind just died and the team is going to try.  I am  uncertain."
