Heading downhill!

Bill just called from Camp 4 to say that a band of happy and healthy climbers was about to head downhill to Camp 2.

Everyone is doing great and is fully conscious of the fact that they have a long way to go down. They are focused and, while they are excited to get down to the relatively "thick" air of 21,500 feet, they know they need to be cautious as they make their way down the Lhotse Face.

They should arrive sometime during the night (in the US) and Bill said they would try to post some photos from summit day after they arrived.

Thanks to everyone for all the good wishes and hearty congratulations. I'm sure we'll all rest a lot easier when our friends and loved ones are back down at Base Camp.
