Everest Team on the Summit!!!

We just received the call from the top of the world!  The entire team is on the top right now, at 6:55am Nepal Time.  It’s a beautiful morning and they are enjoying the views from the top of the world.  Congratulations to our climbers, guides, and of course the Sherpa who are standing on top of the world at this very moment.  It’s been a tough season, but Scott just called and said this was the best summit day he’s ever had (#7 for Scott) and the whole team is doing great.

Congratulations to:

Albert Connaughton

Tim Hilgendorff
