IMG leader Mike Hamill reports from Base Camp: “The team is doing well and in good spirits considering the events of the past few days. We had a lengthy team meeting today and have decided to leave the mountain for several reasons including continued unstable conditions high on the mountain. The Sherpa are headed up to C2 early tomorrow morning to bring down the remaining gear and they plan to be back to Base Camp around 10am so we can pack before lunch and head down early afternoon. We’ll spend the night in Sama and fly to Kathmandu the next morning”.
