Fears camp 3 and ropes lost on Abruzzi

Mingma G has said that a huge avalanche swept down the Abruzzi Ridge today in the morning. Other climbers were also witness from base camp. It was so big that they fear that the ropes higher up and camp 3 could be lost.

They had gone near camp 4 on their last trip up. But they fear for the ropes and gear that was left there too. Tomorrow a Sherpa team will go up to assess the damage.

At the moment the weather is not good with snow every evening and high winds forecast for the summit. So the climbers are waiting for another weather window. But first they will need to see what damage has been done.
