My team summited on May 23 at approximately 4:30 am. It was an amazing day up to the South Summit with very little wind. Once we hit the Southeast ridge the wind started to blow but it did not diminish our ambition or effort. My first client arrived on the summit at a blazing speed of 6:30 hours. The whole team averaged about 7:15 to the summit.
The team who summited consisted of:
Chris Klinke-expedition leader- USA
Eric Meyer-expedition doctor- USA
Tashi Sherpa- Sirdar-Nepal
Damai Chheeri Sherpa-Nepal
Farji Al Lithfi-Indonesia
Nima Kancha Sherpa-Nepal
Martin Rimbawan- Indonesia
Lhakpa Tshering Sherpa-Nepal
Piotr Ciesweski- Poland
Mingma Chhiri Sherpa-Nepal
Shyam Bahadur Tamang-Nepal
It has been a great expedition season and an amazing team. It has been my pleasure to lead this amazing team to the roof of the world.
