Everest Team on the Summit!

We just got the call from Nepal that our Everest Team reached the top of Mount Everest at 7:30 am local time this morning (May 22nd).  One climber, Chris Hill, turned around and is back at the South Col already with several of our Sherpa guides, but the rest of the team stood on top and they are on their way down already.  They’ll descend to the South Col for the night, and continue their descent to Camp 2 in the morning.

and the 7 climbing Sherpa who accompanied them today.   I am still awaiting confirmation of the Sherpa who summited today, and will update as soon as I get the names.

Everyone is doing great and they should be down to the South Col in 5-6 hours.
