Leslie, his sherpa and Sunita met another climber on their way down but despite many efforts they were not able to help him in the bad weather. After many crevasses and slippery ice, the group made it back to the tent where Leslie saw that Sunita's right hand been badly frost-bitten.
"I then remembered we had a flask of ginger tea. I used this to try and re-warm Sunita's hand. I dried it off and told her to keep it in her fleece pocket which would keep it warm."
