Weather window nowhere in sight, rotting ice fall and desperate summit bids - so what else is new on Everest?

Well, today the guys held the world's highest flea market! Everest BaseCamp Clinic hosted the 'Grand Bazaar' and the Doc's report: "The idea was to bring all the stuff you didnít want anymore and trade it for something else."
In some cases - that included climbing gear...
Most popular items to trade were books, DVDís, batteries, Pringles, and Snickers bars. "The Singaporeans proved themselves to be very good trades people and became very popular."
