The entire climbing team arrived safely down to the South Col a couple hours ago. WONDERFUL NEWS! They will spend the night in Camp 4, relaxing, enjoying hot drinks and generally recovering after their all night outing. They will descend to Camp 2 tomorrow before returning to Base Cam
The team has now started their descent back to the South Col. Let’s wish the team a safe trip down the mountain. I will continue to send updates on their progress as our climbers start making their way back home. Next update should be in around 6 hours.
All climbers who left the South Col late last night have now summited the highest mountain in the world!!! Willie just radioed in – NO WIND, MOST AMAZING SUMMIT EVER!!!!! Damian Benegas 6th Summit, Willie Benegas 12th Summit, Reagan Rick, Ed McCullough and John Oldring 1st Summi
It is 06.30am here in Nepal and we’ve just heard our climbing team on the radio – they just reached the South Summit of Mt. Everest. The sun is rising and I can only describe the day and the views the climbers must have as… Perfect!! It is an amazing day outside. Not a sin
