Race reports via sat phone from ABC that Steve and
Scott made their summit bid today in one nonstop push.
Steve made the summit (27 hours roundtrip from ABC)
while Scott felt sick and turned at C3 and came down
to stay with Mike and Reid at C2 (who were coming down
from their summit climb the day before). The Sherpas
are now stripping the camps and hauling down all the
gear from the upper mountain. The yaks have been
ordered, and the team intends to descend to Base Camp
in the next few days, and continue to Kathmandu in
early October. John reports everyone is happy and
doing well, with no problems or injury.
