Pax Arctica Rwenzori Expedition Day 8 – Returning to base camp Jan. 25, 2014 - 10 am local time.

Final day of returning to base camp, reached Saturday evening Jan 25. Our return was not without incidents as one of our team members had to be carried down the mountain on stretchers because of her clear symptoms of altitude sickness (among other signs, O2 saturation was 63 – should have been above 80 at 4800m). Just to be on the safe side we all decide to expedite her descent to lower altitude as indeed David had suspicion of beginning of pulmonary edema.
