Between Camp 2 and Kathmandu

The High Adventures Expedition team had an eventful Saturday on the mountain. On Friday, Ade decided to spend a second night in Camp 3 while TA and Bill descended to Camp2. On Saturday, Ade descended to Camp 2 where he’ll spend Saturday night before continuing back to basecamp. At the same time, TA, Amit, and Bill left Camp 2 for basecamp. TA’s headache and cough continued through the night on Friday and did not improve as they descended on Saturday. By the time they reached the top of the icefall TA was not improving. Knowing that the additional exertion of the Khumbu Icefall would be difficult to manage in her condition, HAEX consulted with the Everest ER docs who recommended that she be flown to Kathmandu for a definitive diagnosis.
