Another quick satellite phone call from 26,000ft:
All 12 members, 4 guides and 17 sherpa successfully climbed to the roof of the world, and back down to Camp 4 at the South Col. The weather was perfect, no wind, cold at the summit, but quite warm lower down. The summit was totally clear, with incredible views all around. There were very few other climbers summiting at that time, affording our climbers time to savour their triumph at the top, and meaning they did not face the traffic jams that occured last year at the Hillary Step.
Half the team have opted to continue on down to Camp 2 before stopping for the night, the others will overnight where they are at Camp 4.
Great job everyone!
More info as soon as we get it.
