Starting the Last Trip Through the Icefall

Via Satellite Phone - LISTEN IN!

GreatOutdoors, this is Dave Hahn, and I'm still at Advance Base Camp. We hit the summit yesterday morning, we came down here to ABC, 21,300, now it's early morning, before six in the morning at least and we're going to head down through the Icefall one more time and head to base camp and get to where life gets a little more comfortable. What I didn't really realize was going on at the same time, our Sherpa team has been  pulling our whole expedition down the mountain. In fact, by today, they will have pulled everything down and the last Sherpas of our team will come out  through the Icefall with big heavy loads, so the expedition will be done. We didn't realize we were cutting it quite that close to the end, but yeah, we were causing the end. But looking forward to getting down,  looking forward to one more safe passage through the Icefall,  and getting a little more comfortable in Base Camp. Bye now.
