This call from Scott Woolums came in during the night. It confirms that our entire 2010 Everest team safely reached the summit of the highest peak in the world!
As equally important, they are all back in Camp 4 resting as well as people are able to rest at 26,000 feet. It sounded like an absolutely amazing summit day.
The team will descend to Camp 2 at about 21,500 feet tomorrow (this evening in US time zones) and will undoubtedly check in from the comforts of our Advanced Base Camp after they arrive.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL THE CLIMBERS AND SHERPAS!!!
Special thanks to our incredible Sherpa team! You are one of the pillars of our Everest program and we cannot thank you enough for your hard efforts to make this ascent possible.
Sherpas to reach the summit:
Da Wang Chhu
And thanks to our "Safety Sherpa" Mindu, for selflessly waiting for our team at the South Col.
Here is Scott Woolums, calling in from Camp 4 at 26,000 feet:
