This is a message to let you know that I’m safe, and wasn’t caught up in the Avalanche on the North Col that happened this morning. Thankfully I was back in Base Camp (with the rest of our team) having previously climbed the North Col less than 36 hours ago. It has only happened so we don’t know many details, and there is a serious storm on at the moment, so we probably won’t know for a while. It is thought that there are two climbers missing and one believed dead, but I don’t think anyone is sure what nationalities they are yet.
See the Telegraph’s recent article on the incident here.
