Update: Ryan called this morning (in America) from Everest ABC. All are well
and ready to head up if the weather would improve.
The climbers on his team are independent climbers where Ryan and SummitClimb
are providing logistical support. This is not a guided climb. So you will
probably see individual summit attempts in separate groups with or without
their individual Sherpas.
