Climbers descending to 11K camp.
Robert called in this morning with an update from the ridge. It sounded pretty calm up there today. It had been Rockin and Rollin up there yesterday he said again.
Robert said the weather is better today, but they are pulling the plug and coming down today. They have been up on the mountain for a long time and gave it a good go. They waited out the weather longer than a lot of people would be willing to do. So far this season there have only been 33 people summit. That is quite low, that's an approximate success rate of 27%. The weather has not been too cooperative yet this season.
Robo said they would head down to 14 and make there way down to the lower glacier through the night and try to make it out sometime tomorrow, weather permitting of course.
That's a wrap.
