    In today's call from Makalu, Steve House describes a tropical storm that dropped 36 inches of wet snow in 36 hours on base camp. The weight of the snow was enough to collapse their cook tent. Undeterred and with time running out, Steve is going to head up Makalu one more time with friend and photographer Cory Richards who kindly emailed the photos attached to this post.
