What a pity! The fog avoids the summit of Carlos Soria in the dhaulagiri when they were less than 100 m. They've already returned to base camp.
Carlos Soria made a wise decision by giving up the summit; but there will soon be another attempt. The season has only just begun.

Mont Maudit (4465m) with a clear post-storm sunset a couple of days ago - at the bottom of the photo you can also make out the Grand Mulets refuge! It's rather misleading as it looks like you could step out of the refuge and onto the face... actually there is 1km of gnarly crevasses and séracs between the refuge and the Maudit!
It's a bit chilly in Chamonix right now so we've escaped to the Italian coast for a bit of rock climbing!

While climning Mount Whitney, I began talking with Yelena Anter and her husband, Gary. What a lovely couple. It turned out Yelena is The current Mrs Las Vegas USA, 2017. Of course, I had to have my picture taken with her near the summit. Yes Gary Knipling and Frank Sherrill, I can find beautiful ladies anywhere.
