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.
