The team has just left the South Col at 2305 Nepali time and are on their way to the summit. We can’t imagine how excited (and nervous?) they must be! Skies are clear, and winds have dropped significantly since this afternoon.
After crossing the South Col, their first objective will be to make their way up the Triangular Face over to the main long summit ridge, and on to the Balcony. It will be several hours before they make it to the Balcony at 27,300 feet, over a thousand feet above Camp 4. The winds are staying manageable and clear skies will make for good views come morning.
Climb safe team!!
All the best from us, love and prayers from Base Camp and friends and loved ones all over the world!
