Our Sherpas were all at base camp after a carry yesterday and our members were all at camp and some in Pheriche.
I was talking to Tim on the phone at 07:00hrs when it happened. All Sherpa radios went off and with no reply so a helicopter was to be summoned.
There were only a few patches of ice looming on the west shoulder of Everest that typically shed off this time of year causing concern in that area. This is a matter of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. So very unfortunate. Very very sad. There may be 6 or more Sherpa climbers missing. Many were part of a major filming groups with various operators on the mountain this year.
I'm expecting another call in an hour from Tim with an update.
Current time: 10:45am NPT
