April 28th, Martine arrived to Camp 2 by 3PM, the warnings that bad weather was coming became soon evident as for the next two nights and three days a terrible storm hit the area. All climbers had to remain in their tents, waiting for the weather to clear. Some teams who had made it up to Camp 3 decided to come down as soon as a slight improvement occurred but the conditions were still so bad that a dramatic accident happened, one British climber has lost his life in a fatal fall. Most climbers, including Martine are back in Base Camp by now, all very shaken by the events.
