(CNN) These are fearful times on the highest mountain in the world.
And aftershocks, including a strong one Sunday, are continuing to send snow and rocks thundering down the mountainside, complicating rescue efforts.
“We were sitting here in base camp, feeling the situation was getting better,” said climber Carsten Pederson.
“And then suddenly, we felt the aftershock,” he told CNN on Sunday. “And immediately after the shock, we hear avalanches from all the mountains around us.”
