Lead Guide Tad McCrea called in. A team decision was made to descend down to 14 Camp and off the mountain after forecast of inclement weather at high camp. After determining that there would not be a window for some time the group made the tough choice to turn around. The team picked up their cache around 14 Camp and made their way back to Basecamp. It was a long hard day however among some tired climbers spirits are still high with thoughts of returning home after many long days on the mountain.
