It's a very sad story, but I have faith that the two other climbers are still alive. If they got back to their gear and stayed put, there's a very good chance that they are still alive. The heroes that are the search team will find them!

Two beautiful sunny days in a row in December. It will undoubtedly have to last us for a while.

This was a terrible, terrible choice these men made. I do hope the other two are found, but I'd put the chances of that happening at nil.
