Update 5/21/2005: A group of the Korean attempted the summit! We are told they have turned back around the balcony. (The ropes also end around the Balcony). We have no idea why they turned around, nor can we confirm at this time that they all turned around. It is unknown at this time if others attempted with them.

However, Mr Honda has arrived at Camp 4 at midnight. Other Koreans are said to have arrived at Camp 4 at around 11pm (on the 20th). Unclear if any of these climbers attempted or if they stayed at camp 4.

Scott Wazny has came down to base camp...
