Today, after a weather delay and extra night in the Khumbu we are back to Kathmandu! Tonight we will have a celebratory dinner and wrap up the very fun and successful two month expedition to the top of the World! Thanks for following along!
Today we woke up early for a 3am departure from Camp 2 for our last descent through the Khumbu icefall back to Basecamp. We only saw two other people traveling through the icefall today and the team make quick work of our descent for a second breakfast upon our arrival to Basecamp. It feels good to be safely back to Basecamp! The rest of today we will finish packing up, have a celebration with our entire crew and wake up early tomorrow morning for a Heli flight out of Basecamp back to Kathmandu. If everything goes smooth we will be back to the Yak and Yeti hotel in Kathmandu in the early afternoon.
Congratulations to our entire climbing team, our climbing Sherpa, and Basecamp staff for a safe and successful expedition to the Top of the World! Thanks to all for the hard work for the last two months!
Hi all, Ben here with our Everest expedition. We are back at Camp II this evening and the team is doing great. Tomorrow we will be descending back to basecamp and having a cerebration meal. We can’t wait to get back to our friends, family, and loved ones. Thank you for following our cybercast.
Hi everybody, I am happy to report that we have summited Mount Everest and are safely back down at the South Col at 26,000 ft! We had a beautiful summit day today, perfect weather, not crowded and not too cold either. 12 hour round trip push, we stood on the summit for a while taking photos and enjoying the views, afterwards we geared up for a long climb back down. Anyway, we are setting in for the night, going to have dinner and go to bed here soon then start our descent back to Camp 2. After that we’ll head back down to basecamp, and back to Kathmandu!
