We just heard from our Base Camp staff that our 2016 Mount Everest Team reached the summit at 5:57 am, local time!
Vanessa and her father Greg Blasic, along with Mountain Trip’s Bill Allen, DaOngchu Sherpa, Tawa Chiri Sherpa, and Karma Geljen Sherpa all made good time to the summit. We held a couple of our Sherpa staff back at the South Col in reserve, and are grateful to Danurbu Sherpa and Daniri Sherpa for helping make this summit bid a possibility. The team made great time and the weather is holding clear. The photos from this morning should be incredible!
We’ll post more updates as we receive them. GREAT JOB EVERYONE!!!
