Greg called from Base Camp to report the team made a successful descent, arriving back before it got dark. They took it slow and easy on the way down, with many rappels down the fixed ropes. Greg said everyone was safe and sound, after a long day. Weather was cloudy with a few sprinkles, but not too bad. The team has the helicopter on call for tomorrow morning, so we’ll keep our fingers crossed that the conditions will allow them to be flown out on schedule. So far, so good.
