Yesterday's Everest west ridge summit bid stalls due to avalanche danger. Team regroups at Tillman's Camp.

All summit attempts by this team on the west ridge have been called off. It seems like it is all over. Too bad all that hard work to get in position.

Hey William, the CBC just aired a story on the other climbers passing David Sharp and not helping him. They tried to talk to Laurie at the 18,000' camp via sat-phone to get his opinion but they lost the signal several times. It's sad to hear that their summit bid is over.
