Island Peak Climbers descend!

Namaste friends, family and loved ones,

Yesterday was big, over 15 hours climbing got us to the 20,189 ft. summit of Imja Tse aka Island Peak. High winds hounded us all the way.

 

 

Today we slept in. And then leisurely made our way down valley. We dropped a couple thousand feet to beautiful downtown Dingboche and are anticipating a good night’s sleep for the first time in a while.

 

All is well with our team and our appetites are coming back with a vengeance.

All my best,
Vern Tejas
