IMG leader Mike Hamill made it back to Camp 2 and rejoined the IMG Team, after helping with the response to the avalanche at Camp 3. The IMG team is all doing well at Camp 2 and will spend another night there. Their plan is to descend to Base Camp in the morning, so we’ll have more info after they get down.
This is a very sad accident, apparently caused by a random act of nature. When a serac (a big ice block) falls on a slope, it will cause the snow to be dislodged.
Our thoughts and prayers go to the climbers and families.
