IMG Leader Greg Vernovage reports that the members and sherpas had a successful rotation to Camp 2. After spending another night at Camp 1 (6400m / 20992 ft), they ascended the ridge to the Ice Cliff, then continued on up through the seracs to Camp 2 (7100 m / 23290 ft) where they spent the night. Yesterday they descended back to ABC. The weather continues to hold and after a couple days of rest at ABC the summit bids will begin!
