Entire team arrives; Climber Cory Richards evacuated

By @

Update from multiple sources:  The rest of the Mayo research team and other trekkers in their group arrived at base camp today, so now all six Mayo expedition members are together again.  Shortly after their arrival, North Face/National Geographic climber/photographer Cory Richards was evacuated due to altitude sickness. Details on that are available on the NatGeo blog.
