Our intrepid team reports this about their summit on 5/17 at 11:00 am, local time:
After departing Camp 2 at 4:00 am we made the summit this morning at 11 am. Joel Gratz, thank you from the entire team, you picked one heck of nice day – light winds, warm and stayed clear long enough for us to make it all the way back to Advanced Base Camp. The Team is exhausted after the 17 hour day but everyone is healthy and happy to be down. Thanks so much for the all the support and encouragement.
