Jake Meyer back at base camp

Jake Meyer has finally made his way back to base camp after nearly making it to the 4th camp. There were 4 from his group that were trying to get to camp 4. Two of them turned around to leave Jake and one other to make it to this camp. The conditions were difficult because of the at times waist high snow. Eventually through exhaustion and a broken o2 bottle, they turned back.

The climbers from his group that continued to the Bottleneck had some real difficulties with the conditions. The wind was blowing hard in this section and it blew ice chunks from above at them.
