Jacob called in on the teams rest/acclitization day with updates from the mountain. He didn’t mention that Dave and John Strange have left the trip today, after Dave wasn’t feeling well on the way down from their carry to C1 yesterday. We asked Jacob not to mention it until Dave was able to communicate with his family and friends so we didn’t worry anyone too much. He flew out by helicopter late in the day on the 30th and his son, John and guide Joe Butler accompanied him back to Mendoza. We hope Dave is feeling better really soon.
Here’s Jacob’s call from base camp.
