An update from Paul by satellite phone at 12.45pm GMT (Nicky)
Today it was with relief that we arrived back at Camp 2. During the trip down the risk was from tiredness and incompetence rather than a random event as can occur in the Khumbu Icefall.
We head to Base Camp through the Icefall early in the morning. No doubt, once there, I will have the energy and time to update in detail the events of the last couple of days.
