HIMEX explains their Everest decision

I wrote yesterday about HIMEX and Russell Brice’s decision to call off their Everest expedition this year due to safety concerns. Today we have word from HIMEX directly on their decision and how they reached it. You can read the post on their site here

When you add all these things together, the danger is certainly past my parameters. There are just too many indicators, such as the big ice cliff that fell into the lake in the Annapurna Region and caused the floods, that the weather is just not right this season.
