Reported white out on Abruzzi Spur

Everestnews has reported that there was a 3 hour white out on the Abruzzi Spur. Climbing in these conditions would mean extremely low visibility.This may not mean though that they haven’t made progress today.

The Abruzzi Spur has so far had the worst of the climbing weather this year. On the last attempt camp 2 was wiped out by a storm. And this time there is a reported white out. There have been no reports as of yet as to the conditions on the Cesen route.

Both routes have reported lots of rockfall because of the melting ice not holding the rocks to the side of the mountain.
