Team back to BC safely and onto Kathmandu

Hello Everyone, Yesterday we all arrived to a hearty welcome to Basecamp to finish a very successful expedition. We had an excellent summit day with only a couple other teams also summiting that day. I’m proud to have lead our 5 climbers to the top of the World with the help of 5 strong Sherpa making it a 100% success in our main team. We have all just arrived to Kathmandu and are looking forward to getting to the hotel! Thanks for following along! Ben Jones
