From a series of dispatches from the Alpine Ascents 2007 Everest Expedition team.
Well, I guess it’s about time to send an interim descent report. No, Vern, Bill, and Pa-Rita aren’t back to the South Col yet, but they are making their way steadily down. When they talked to the South Col at 3:30 they were at the Balcony. The weather continues to be reasonable – a little breezy but sunny. So we are expecting them to be down in the next couple of hours. I’m sure they will be plenty tired and ready to sleep when they get there.
