Apologies for the silence over the last few days. We have been working hard to come to terms with the events of the past week here in the Khumbu; sad and complex events which have led us to make the decision to cancel our Everest Expedition this spring.

Unfortunately, one of our members felt the affects of altitude a bit too much and was forced to turn around at 5600m with Jaime.
