Just got a flicker of net access, and wanted to assure you that I am fine, as are all of my teammates. I was at Camp 2 (21,300 feet) when the quake struck, and we were just fine up there. It was a kind of torture being so high up, thus unable to descend quickly to assist at EBC where the impact was greatest. My thoughts are with those lost, not only on E but throughout this beautiful country.
Our summit aspirations have ended, but our dedication to Nepal is strong. We will start walking out tomorrow, eager to assist wherever possible.
Net infrastructure is shattered, and I anticipate no more posts for at least a week. THANK YOU for your kindness and support and interest. I look forward to communicating with each of you individually once I am able to do so.
