Episode 106: Cowboys But not Indians

Butterflies In The Himalayas. The team returns to base camp to regroup and dry out after embracing Tim’s decision to leave the climbing up to Ben and Josh.

The Austrian team has left and now Ben and Josh will be the only climbers on Annapurna IV. The climbers are extremely self-sufficient with incredible mountaineering skills, but the true danger of climbing these tall giants is everpresent…avalanche.

While the guys rest up and reflect on the climb from the mess tent an enormousand distant avalanche slides off of A4 and blankets the camp with snow and debrie.

Amazingly, if Tim had not decided to stop climbing and return to base camp the team would have been caught in the hazardous slide. Remarkable.
