Everest North-East ridge expedition over
01:24 a.m. EDT May 24, 2003
Ian Woodall and Cathy O'Dowd reported earlier today that they must call it quits on their Everest North-East Ridge attempt. Just yesterday, a sherpa fell into a crevasse but managed to grip at the edge and pull himself out. Ian got a seizure. It has been a rough year on Everest and this team were really toughing it out on their difficult route. The expedition is now awaiting the arrival of the yaks, May 29. Another South-African team, on the Everest South Side, are returning home without a summit as well. Read Cathy's account of the latest events.
