May 7, 2013: 21:00hrs NPT.. High winds set back rope fixing....Good effort put forth by the fixing team but it's a no go.
High winds were encountered up high on the mountain today putting a stop to ropes being fixed to the summit. It looks like by the weather reports it may be put off now till later next week due to extreme wind forecasts on the horizon. Just like we said in an earlier report; We get through the rotations, high winds come and we wait.... a typical Everest season.
Over and out.. Tim
