But, it could be a lot of people. How many people were there? Was there enough camp space for all these people at 17,200 feet?

There are approx. 7 climbers on the fixed lines, 8-10 waiting at the base of the lines and then the 3-man rope team ahead of us. Plenty of space at 17K, but unfortunately we weren't able to score a pre-existing site and had to build ours from scratch.
