Ouch, just saw this and felt my stomach drop. Mark's been in some tough spots before and pulled through. Here's hoping he and Tom come out alright...

Jeez just got back to SP. Ataxia does not sound good.

Hoping for a miracle.

According to this report, Tom is "unresponsive in a snow cave near the summit." I thought and hoped he had hiked down at least part of the way with Mark.

I hope the last line in the report is an error. Praying for a miracle.

My thoughts go out to the climbers, their families and friends. A tough situation that I hope turns out for the best.
