What Really Happened Above Camp II?

Recently, Outside Online published an interview with Tashi Sherpa, involved in the now less-than-secret altercation above Camp II on Everest on April 27th. Our team was at Camp II at the time, and this first-hand account most accurately describes what happened. Give it a tumble at Outsideonline.com:
