Successful Climb and Summit of Everest
Their patience paid off! Both teams had a successful climb and summit of Everest during an almost perfect weather window.
The summit push really began when the teams left Camp 3 (27,390′ / 8300m). The #EverestNoFilter team (Adrian Ballinger, Cory Richards, “Topo” Esteban Mena, Mingma, Palden, and Pasang-Rinji) left C3 at 11:30pm on Friday May 26, Cory and Mingma left at 1:30am Saturday May 27.
Our Mount Everest North Side Rapid Ascent expedition team (Brooks Entwistle, Zeb Blais, Chad Peele, PaNuru, Dorji, Phurba, Nawang) left Camp 3 (27,390′ / 8300m) at 12:30am Saturday May 27 for their final summit push!
SUMMIT at 5:43am on May 27 for our Rapid Ascent team! CHEERS to a successful summit and a super strong team!
SUMMIT at 10:58am on May 27 for the #EverestNoFilter team. The whole team spent ten minutes on summit together, including Adrian Ballinger who summited without supplemental oxygen!!
Both teams had successful summits on Everest (29,035′ / 8850m) and they were all safely back down at ABC (21,300′ / 6400m) within 12 hours!
