Main dangers over – Grant at ABC – May 21 update
Got a call from Grant from ABC. he bombed down the route in ultra fast time on Sunday, and by lunchtime was relaxing with a beer. He sounded very relaxed, and contented. The main objective dangers are past, as it’s just a long hike back to basecamp on a well-trodden route. What remains to be seen is how much time he’ll need to hangback in basecamp and the expedition winds up and flights re-arranged. There are still some people who may be very tired and slow in the descent. Suffice to say, he is way ahead of his original schedule.
