Mike Browder, the leader-in -training, for Summit Climb on this Expedition headed for the summit last night and became snow blind at the South Summit. Sherpas are doing their best to bring him down safely. Things can happen quickly on the mountain. This is a very dangerous situation.
I spent several days with Mike in Kathmandu. He helped me with my shopping for the climb and entertained me at dinner. The rest of the family will have spent time with him in Base Camp. He is an experienced climber who leads climbing expeditions in the Alps. I am so thankful my family had a safe summit. Please add Mike and the rescue Sherpas to your prayers.
