IMG Everest Expedition Dispatch #15 April 29, 2008

IMG Leaders Mark Tucker and Ang Jangbu report that everything is going well on the mountain. Most of the IMG climbers are still up at Camp 2 doing their acclimatization rotation up there.

Our custom weather forecaster Michael Fagin in Seattle (www.everestweather.com) tells us that the tropical cyclone Nargis in the Bay of Bengal is now trending away from Everest (we had been watching that with some concern).

This is good news--hopefully, with improving weather, the Chinese will make the summit soon, and everything will revert to normal!
