High winds turns many climbers back from camp 3

After what has been described as a hard climb between camps 2 and 3 it looks as though the most recent summit attempt is over. Many climbers are reporting to be turning back. They said that the winds were too strong to continue on. With this expecting to continue, it looks as though another attempt will not be made till later in the month.

At this point no one has climbed as far as camp 4. Even in good weather the climb between camp 3 and 4 can be quite a challenge depending on the terrain at the time.
