Jon was near an avalanche but he is OK

Just in case you hear something on the news . . .

Jon called to say that he and Marcus are OK.   They were in the icefall when an avalanche fell off the west shoulder of Everest onto the icefall between the Football Field and Camp 1.  Now he's safe back at base camp.

CNN says that up to 10 people are missing.

Jon and I are counting our blessings.



  1. So glad for your update and to hear that Jon is safe. Thank you Susan, Denise B

  2. So glad you updated this page and so glad Jon is okay! Jon was my first thought when I heard the news. - Mary (friends with Dr Todd

  3. Glad to hear you're safe, keep it that way, my thoughts are with you

  4. So glad to hear they are safe, been praying since I heard the CNN news.

  5. Glad to hear you are safe! My heart goes out to the families who lost loved ones in the avalanche. It has been interesting following your journey and I do hope you, the Sherpas and the IMG team summit (and make it back down) successfully. It was a pleasure climbing Mount Rainier with you and I know your positive attitude is helping keep everyone's spirit's up.
