All the climbers are back at base camp at Hidden Valley as of 4 p.m. From the sound of it, they're in good spirits, telling stories and enjoying some well-deserved camaraderie. Great news that all are safe and sound! As Breast Cancer Fund President Jeanne Rizzo says, summiting is optional, but getting down is not.
Down here in town the climbers' families are arriving in anticipation of the team's descent off the mountain tomorrow around noon. Tonight we'll host a sign-making party to help cheer our climbers home.
It's been an incredible day all around.
