Climbers start to head down from C4

After 12 climbers made the summit of K2 yesterday, they stayed at C4 last night. Today within the last hour they have started to descend to base camp today.

It was a truly brave effort from  the climbers yesterday. All reports were that it was not an easy climb even to the lower camps. The weather was good as predicted for summit day. Yet the going was slow and there must have been deep snow. In particular Mingma G and his team of Sherpas deserve praise for making the right decision, and their incredible effort. It is possible that without his team there would have been no summit yesterday.
