Summit!!!!!!!

Hello everyone,

We have just arrived back down to Camp 2 after safely and successfully summiting the 6th highest mountain in the World! Jason, Malcolm, and John all were very strong on the entire expedition and proved that again today on our 8 hour climb to the summit!

We are tired but everyone is so happy to have stood on top of Cho Oyu. The weather was incredible with barely any wind and the most incredible views of the Himalaya!

Tomorrow we will return to ABC to celebrate and then soon after start heading back to Lhasa and Kathmandu.

I will give more details of the climb tomorrow! Thanks for Following! And a special shout out to my brother Ryan’s 1st grade class at Olney- Bissell school near Whitefish Montana for following along on our adventure.
