Team summits on Oct. 4th

I am pleased to announce that the team summited on October 4th at 7:30am. We had beautiful climbing conditions and started at 2:10am and were back at camp 3 at 11am. We then broke down both camp 3 and camp 2 and descended all the way down to camp 1 at 21,000 ft by 6pm yesterday. It was a calm day and we had amazing views of Everest from the summit. We descended back to ABC today and we plan to hike out from the mountain tomorrow and hopefully drive to the border town of Zangmu and be in Kathmandu on Oct. 7th. Very few teams summited this season and we feel very fortunate. It was an amazing expedition. Thanks for following our cybercasts.

    Gear Review: The North Face Phantom 50 pack

    By Mike Hawkins “Man, this is a really great pack…” I said it over and over for months until my wife had finally had enough of it. She had to get one for herself.  While 50 liters is a little small for most multi-day mountaineering and winter ski tours, the small size is plenty versatile […]
