Worried about climber crowding, Rob persuades Scott to cooperate to reduce delays. On the summit attempt, Rob’s group departs Camp IV before dawn, planning to complete the ascent and turn around by 2 pm, the latest safe time for return before nightfall. The group is delayed over an hour after discovering a guide. Beck has eyesight problems and stops. Rob tells him to return if his condition does not improve in a half-hour. Scott hurries back to camp to help another climber, but plans to re-ascend. Rob warns him about over-exertion.

He strips off his face and slides off the mountainside to his death. In the morning, Rob radios Helen that Doug and Andy are gone and their hands are frozen. Helen calls Jan, hoping Rob will respond to her voice. Jan tells Rob that he must start moving. Rob tells her he’s cold but comfortable and asks Sarah for her baby. He dies soon after.
Beck and Yasuko are stranded. The weather, however, makes rescue impossible. Helen calls Beck’s wife, Peach, and informs her of the situation. In the morning, Beck miraculously awakens, sees Yasuko’s body and stumble back to camp alone, severely frostbitten and in dire need of medical help.
