The team is safely back to ABC enjoying the comforts of base camp after a safe and successful summit rotation. Here are some photos. We snuck in the summit just in time: it has been dumping snow since we returned, winds have increased, a lenticular cloud has blanketed the mountain, and some teams heading for the summit have turned back due to lots of snow. Today and tomorrow are rest/packing days then on the 5th the team heads to Nyalam for a night, then on to Kathmandu on the 6th. The Sherpa finished clearing the mountain today and are packing up ABC.
