"Marco. Comfort tola is somewhere on the bottleneck. At least that's where. He thinks he is. The rope is gone as he clambers down. His legs feel heavy like blocks of wood. He's not sure how many more steps you can take. And then he hears a familiar rumble somewhere on the top and avalanche when he hears the first rock and icefall his way he tries to talk himself against the wall and make himself small his heart is pounding and he starts to pray and then. It's hear thundering cascade of isis snow before it envelopes completely and suddenly stops marco looks up to see a few large chunks of ice and debris tumble passed along with a pair of yellow boots. He knows boots. They belong to german donal glass time he saw them. They were on jurists feet. As he walked up the mountain marco sinks to his knees. He can't do this anymore. This is too much but he can't die here on the mountain. He stumbles up again and he takes a few steps. Then he false. He's too weak. He can't even pick up his legs so.

"Casavant. Behavioral isn't sure what time it is. When he finally reaches the bottom of the bottleneck. he knows his. He's lucky he pulls out his radio and spins through the frequencies trying to get someone on the line. He finally reaches roland one of his dutch nor teammates at base. Camp ro ro. i'm still in the mountain. but i'm through the bottleneck. I'm okay but the french clamor. Hugue i think he fell. I saw a body go by. I look from on the way down. But i couldn't find him and jer and pemba are they with you know no. We were separated. I don't know where they are. I'm going to make my way to camp four. I can't feel my feet. As cast begins the final trek across the snowfield. He sees headlamps approaching. Its two sherpas from the korean team. They're looking for their cousin. Julich and the other korean climbers cast asked if anyone has made it back down they not pemba sherpa. He was with cheering and pasang be passed them on the way cast. Ask them to keep their eye out for hugh but in his heart he knows the clamor is gone and then he heads for camp. Four gomez son battles her way down the mountain pulling freezing mountain air into her lungs. Her oxygen cylinder expired hours ago every once in a while she can see the twinkle of a headlamp far far ahead. It belongs to mr kim. The korean leader they left chewing and the others to try to find another way down now. She's lost at the top of the traverse. she finds the severed rope. But where is the line hocus pocus. Then she finds the second row hooked into an anchor down below. She can see mr kim. Making his way down the bottleneck. She climbs down and begins to pick her way along using her ice axes until she reaches the long angled snowfield at the bottom. When she looks she can no longer see. Mr kim's headland at all mr kim. Her voice echoes across. The dark slopes no response. She's alone on the pitch dark mountain and now the wind is picking up. She's climbed eleven of the world's tallest peaks. She's gotten through difficult situations before she can do this but as she tries to feel her way along the ice her mind starts to muddle. Her sense of direction is completely lost. Suddenly she runs into an outcropping check rocks. They're covered in ice snow. This wasn't here on the way that she could turn around balancing carefully she steps from one rock to the next but then she gets stuck. She can't move up or down and she can't see a thing for all. She knows she's about to walk off a cliff. She sits down on a boulder and puts her head in her hands. It's so cold. She can feel her body shutting down. She banks gloved hands together to keep the circulation going. Her eyes start to close she so tired. Suddenly she's sitting at a would table or eighty three year. Old father sits across her. Call me son. He says everyone is so proud of you. South korea is so proud. His face is round and warm like the sun inviting calling to her flight. Horizon snap awake. She can't fall asleep. she needs something to do. She takes off her headlamp and checks the batteries. Maybe the arc of light will guide someone towards her but with each passing minute. She feels herself growing colder and colder. She knows soon hypothermia will set in and then she sees lights moving up the mountain. Mr kim. dd. It's the shirtless. Serving and big. D is their pet name for her. It means big sister in nepali. They are jumex cousins. Her favorite sherpa as they draw closer. She cries out mr kim. Where's mr kim. don't worry he's back at camp four. He told us to come. Look for you and make. where's humic it's quiet for a moment. Then by son speaks up is still on the mountain. Her heart sinks. She was the one who urged to join the expedition. This her fault maybe she should go back and look for him but she can't think jimmy will be okay. He's strong. We need to get you back to camp. Four big pasang pollster free from the raw and clips for safety harness to their own the rope at four thirty a m. They delivered ghomi son to mr kim's tent tears in his eyes. Thank you searing. Thank you big pasang. The two men nod respectfully and head back to the mountain they must find germ mcdonald opens his eyes. It's five am. He survived the night on the mountain in subzero temperatures without a sleeping bag above them. The dawn is bathing k. Two's craggy flanks impeach colored light jerk can hardly see. His eyelids are encrusted with ice. But as the first rays of the sun began to warm him he slowly comes to life. Marco are you marco comfort tola quickly jumps to his feet. Were alive jer. Let's get wilco. Go and find a way down. A hundred meters away. Wilco is already awake stamping his feet trying to restore circulation and warm up his limbs. The ropes have to be close by. I think we should split up. If one of us finds them we can call out to the others. Wilco walks off in one direction and mark wgr at the opposite way but as wilco walks. He's just as confused as he was the night before. Everything looks the same and there is no sign of the ropes. He has a pounding headache. Why is the so hard then. His eyes start to blur and he realizes what's happening to him. His eyes are literally being burned by the sun's ultraviolet light. The headache is part of that. But it's also likely fluid building up in his brain from lack of oxygen a condition called cerebral at dima. If there's any chance of surviving he needs to get down now row or no rope. He quickly makes his way back to marco jer. Listen guys if i go snow blind. I won't be able to look for anything and you guys can't carry me in your condition. I just need to go down and then without a goodbye. We'll go walks away..

"Cecilia hits her headlamp. The light flickers once and has gone. She can't see thing and now she's alone on the mountain in the dark without ralph. Her heart is racing tears. Roll down her face. An image flashes into her mind his smiling face as he built so to dylan tune on his her monica blow in the wind. She shakes her head. He must be here somewhere. Maybe he's hurt waiting for them and then she hears a voice from below cecilia. It's lars cecilia. repel down. it's okay. Just hurry. She reaches forward in the dark and fuels for the rope. She gives it a tug and then slides down into the darkness as she repels headlamp flickers on and off casting eerie shadows on the ice and rock maybe lars found rolf. She thinks they'll be standing at the bottom waiting for her. They can go home together when she gets to the bottom. She looks around no roof. Only lars where is he she feels cheated like lars tricked her into coming down but then she sees lars face in the soft glow of his headlamp. It's gentle and soft cecilia. Listen he's gone. We have to go look for him tomorrow when it's light k. Cecilia stands frozen trying to comprehend it all just this morning. The sun was shining and she was looking down into her husband's smiling face. Now it's dark and he's gone. She puts one foot in front of the other and continues down. The pemba sherpa looks over the edge of the icy slope above the traverse. It's ten pm. He made good time down the snowfield and quickly found the top of the traverse. There's a problem. There's no rope leading down. The korean team took it after they descended. The only thing left behind was the ice axe. They used to anchor the rope now. The koreans are seated down below quiet and exhausted. This means the remaining climbers on the mountain will need to get down the one hundred fifty foot wall without the aid of a rope a drop. That's roughly the height of twelve story. Building he walks back a few paces and confers with sherpa cheering door jay. From the american team they decide to descend and wait for the others at the bottom. Maybe they can help. Guide them down while they wait. Pemba watches the korean team. There disoriented and their movement. Slow it takes some of them fifteen minutes to put on their headlamps a tasks that would normally only take two at last. Here's the voices of his teammates from above the ridge. There's no rope. He shouts be careful. Go very slowly. The men kicked their crampons and access into the ice for support and slowly carefully lower themselves down. Pemba is glad to see them. Along with the climber from italy when they get to firm ground they stand quietly against the wall staring into the shadowy darkness around them. One of the mumbles. Our we find the rope. Everything just looks the same there in even worse shape than the last pemba sabam the altitude and the climb up have decimated all of them. The korean team leader. Mr kim sits in the snow panting for breath. No one is leading the way or at all. If someone doesn't do something they will all die here on. The mountain. pemba quickly calls the small group of sherpas together. The four of them are the only ones still in good shape listen. The climbers need our help to get down the traverse. We're going to need to rope them together. Does anybody have a rope. One of the sherpa rustles through his pack. I have one. I saved and in case of emergency. That's great. we'll stand to at the front and two at the end will hold onto the rope. And the climbers can click on that way we can help them get to the traverse. Everyone nods then. They begin shouting directions at climbers clip on here. Fix your harnesses to this rope. But everyone is moving so slowly. One of the climbers just lays there in the snow unresponsive gazing blankly up at the sky pemba crouches down and wraps his arms around the man's torso hauling up. Another sherpa helps flipping the climber's harness onto the rope. Line get up. You have to stand now. There could be an avalanche at any time. He's relieved to see two of the climbers. Now appear alert. Cast his teammate. From the north team and marco comfort tola the only italian climber to make it up to the summit from the italian team. Marco was an experienced climber and guide having summited six of the tallest mountains in the world. Hembo is glad to have us help. Pemba checks the line and turns to the climbers. Let's go please. We need to walk but walking is hard for everyone with each step. The climbers feet sink into the snow. Making them think they're on a steeper. Climb than they are. One climber takes two steps forward and plops back down into the snow exhausted pulling others down with them. Some of them fall asleep. Get up please. You have to keep moving together. None of them can see the trail when they do walk they wander left and right bumping into each other pemba worries a disoriented climber street too close to the edge and they'll fall off dragging everyone else with them in the dark. It's hard to see anything but the ropes must be here somewhere all at once. The line of climbers stops and one by one they sink to the ground and relief then a few clip from the line and begin to wander off premise. Is this isn't working. He gathers the sherpas again. This is impossible to find the start of the fixed rope passing. You come with me. We'll go ahead when we find the rope. You signal back to the others and you come with your headlamp okay. Pasang lama is the sherpa from the korean team. He knots he in pemba moved quickly up the snow until they find the ridge of the rock down below embassies. The first anchor glinting in the headland saying this is it using them to the others and wait for them here. I'll repel down to check the rest of the anchors and make sure the rope securely fixed. When pemba gets to the first anchor he sees it solid. The second isn't a secure and the rope line is buried beneath ice and snow. He pulls it out and fixes a second screw next to him. He doesn't get to the third anchor because a few feet past the second he can see. Something's not quite right. The rope is hanging loose. It's not tied to an anchor. It's not tied to anything. It looks like it's been cut by something. But what pemba aims. His light around the bottleneck. The light cast shadows craggy rock then. He aims his headlamp straight up. A huge chunk of this is simply gone. It's collapsed there. Must have been an avalanche. He points his headlamp down the bottleneck below and his heart starts to race. The avalanche away everything including the rope. Now he has no idea how. The climbers coin to get down..
