Waiting for a Weather Window May 13, 2014 | Mountaineering | 9 comments May 13, 2014 Click here to listen to new audio report (audio slightly cut off at the end) Waiting in CBC for the weather to change Dining Tent 9 Comments Alan Feldstein on May 13, 2014 at 10:12 am Bill – just heard your weather report. I will keep positive thoughts and may the mountain give you access to her. Be well! Reply John Dahlem on May 13, 2014 at 10:29 am Bill…hang in there with the “North side hang” as they say and take it “day by day!” Get some good exercise in…few photo hikes, some push-ups and hopefully read some of those books I gave you. I know you will be ready when the “bell rings” and off to the summit. Cheers, John 🙂 Reply Paul G. Colaneri on May 13, 2014 at 11:01 am Bill, I suppose “It’s all up in the air” was an unintentional pun. But seriously, nature humbles us on so many levels. You’re doing all you can do. The mountain will be the final arbiter. Paul Reply Joni on May 13, 2014 at 11:35 am Mr. Burke, Wishing you a good weather window for safe passage up and back down. Thank you for keeping us informed about your trip. The photos are beautiful. Namaste, Joni Allen Ooms Reply Marian Campbell on May 13, 2014 at 1:03 pm I’m glad you are waiting for a safer time. It must be hard to be patient. I hope it all clears up in time to continue to the top, Prayers continue. Reply Richard Dryer on May 13, 2014 at 1:43 pm Namaste Bill, A very newsy audio report. I like John and Paul’s comments: exercise is important, and as far as predicting the weather–“it’s all up in the air”. Following the Chinese up the mountain past camp three is feasible–sans any monsoons. Other complications add to the decision-making mix.

Steve Reply Grant 'Axe'Rawlinson on May 13, 2014 at 8:05 pm All the best Bill, slow and steady wins the race. Summit day is magical along the North Ridge 🙂 Reply Julian Buitrago on May 14, 2014 at 10:25 am Bill, We are praying for you and your team! love from Union, NJ Julian Buitrago and Lil Julian Buitrago and his 3rd grade Washington School Classmates!
