June 23rd Team Descends from high camp

The team headed down along with all of the other climbers at high camp today.  It was another stormy day, with more in the forecast, and they decided it was time to get out of there.  It sounded like a pretty exciting trip down the ridge from high camp with some pretty high wind on the exposed ridge.   They are all down tonight at the 14,000 ft camp where they’ll rest and regroup before beginning the descent to base camp tomorrow.   They worked hard, but ultimately the unrelentingly bad weather just never gave them a break.
