I spoke to the agent in Pakistan yesterday (16th July).  He confirmed that he spoke with Sandy by phone (presumably satellite) ten minutes before I called.  Sandy and Rick are still on the mountain on the Diamir Face. They are in good form despite being low on supplies (that was the 14th day, so having taken 8 days of food etc this is no surprise).  Cathy and the Sherpas have safely returned but there has been no communications.

Apparently there are no teams at the Diamir Base camp at the moment so the agent is organising food and gas to be taken there.  Fortunately this is readily accessible and he hoped that would be there tonight/early tomorrow.
