Mount Everest Trip Report (#2137)

Climbed the South East Ridge route with 5 other team members. Forced to turn back at 28,461 feet due to time restraint. Storm came in on descent and 28 year old lady from Canada died. Affected us all mentally/emotionally. Could have avoided this if we had descended earlier as per our plan. Lesson to be learnt from this is NEVER NEVER NEVER stray from your times, regardless of how close you may be to the summit. This mountain is totally unforgiving in such circumstances. In memory of Susan Webster.
