It's windy at 5240m.

At the end of June 2010 only one group got out of camp. The wind got increasingly worse throughout the day forcing group after group to return after attempting to descend. You know it's bad when you can't go down.

Willie Prettie, Alpine Ascents International's lead Guide, was looking for a way, and a break in the wind to see if was possible to go down. Out there while everyone else was huddled in their tents, Willie looked like a Yellow Denali Yeti.
