Nepal Earthquake: Update #1
There has been a massive earthquake in Nepal. We have heard from our team that all of the climbing team is at Camp 2 and are fine. The earthquake struck while the team was climbing from Camp 1 to Camp 2 in the Western Cwm. There has been extensive damage at base camp and details are still coming in. We will post more information here when we have it.
Glad to hear all is ok with team at Camp 2. Kathmandu is reporting more than 600 lives lost. There have been at least 15 aftershocks of 4.5 magnitude and higher in Nepal since a massive 7.8 earthquake struck the mountainous Asian nation around midday Saturday, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.

Thank you for posting, eager to hear clarification on climbers and who was at base camp.
