Weather delays Sherpas

There was a plan for some Sherpas to go up the Abruzzi Ridge and assess the damage from a recent massive avalanche. However, there has been snow falling and this has made them cancel their plans. Mingma G reported this on Facebook. This means that no one knows if there has been any damage to their camps and equipment up the Abruzzi Ridge. The climbers on the Cesen route have not had this to worry about.

He said that the earliest day that the weather will allow them to climb up is on Saturday 22nd July. According to Mountain Forecast, Saturday appears to be a better day to climb. It is predicting a day without snow. Mingma G did say that time was running out.
