We just (finally) received this brief message from my dad from his portable device.
The trip is over. The mountain is a beast! Small but mighty. Kicked our butt big time-especially mine. I plan to leave Burke-Khang alone. This mountain is for the ages. Even David and the experienced Sherpas were blown away! I am choppering out of here tomorrow. I’ll never cross those glaciers again. Once I am back in Kathmandu and physically and mentally recovered, I’ll file a complete report. I have some great photos and videos to share. ”
More to come-
