Our Island Peak team was delayed by weather at the dirt airstrip in Lukla. The inclement weather, combined with the peak of the pre monsoon tourist season, resulted in almost a thousand people waiting to fly. Our guys got a bit creative and hiked a short ways down valley to get below the clouds and called for a helicopter pick up.
They ate at a nice restaurant last night and are all happy and excited to be back in the big city.
Joe will post a recap and an update shortly.
