those guys were going down either from the summit or from some of the higher camps. lots of people going down on the north col headwall had their down suits around their waists. the weather was real nice - may 17 and 18 were perfect. on 17th Chinese team went for a summit and the reached it.
i was wearing technical fleece jacket on the way up and a simple NF hardshell on the way down - we couldn't asked for better weather.
