IMG guide Erica Engle called on the sat phone from Lobuche Base Camp to report that the team were all down and safe after a great summit day. She said the weather, conditions, and views were excellent, and they enjoyed climbing with Pangboche’s Everest all-stars Mingma Tshering and Tashi Tshering. The plan for tomorrow is to head over the Cho La pass (5,420 metres 17,782 ft) to Gokyo. Sounds like there has been plenty of traffic over the pass, so the trail is now well established after the snowstorm.
