The icefall bares its teeth again
13:57 p.m. EDT Apr 30, 2003
A huge collapse in the icefall happened today just 100 yards below the Adventures International team. Luckily no one was injured and the route is still open.

Expedition leader Scott Woolums reports in that their climbing Sherpas encountered high winds yesterday in the South Col, 7900m - they have since descended to base camp.

Both the Adventures International Everest team and Lhotse team are in Camp II today. Tomorrow the Everest team will take a rest day and the Lhotse team will decide about heading up higher towards Camp III, 6800m. There has been a foot of fresh snow, so they might just climb up to the Lhotse Face and take a peek.

Adventure's International expedition is a smaller, up and coming commercial outfit led by Scott Woolums, an Everest summiteer. This is their second trip up to Camp II this season.
