Climbing The Seven Summits

Congratulations to our first wave of climbers with 100% of the team standing on top of the world! So deserved after such an enormous amount of work and dedication and commitment. We are so proud of you and honoured to be part of your journey.

Congratulations;

Pega Sherpa (5am)
Margaret Kincaid (5:45am)
Pemba Gelji Sherpa (5:45am)
Meghan Buchanan (6am)
Naren Shahi (6am)

Walter Hailes (6:30am)
Pasang Kami Sherpa (6:30am)
Clayton Wolfe (6:45am)
Pasang Tendi Sherpa (6:45am)
Tomas Ceppi (6:45am)

To all our loved ones watching on at home, it’s a massive moment for you too as you celebrate and feel the joy of knowing your person has attained their goal of standing on top of the world! Your support should never be underestimated, thank you you are the reason our climbers can do what they do.

All climbers are now on descent. It’s good to keep in mind that as they descend they will keep focused, conserve their warmth and radio batteries and just motor back down the hill, heads down, bums up as such. It can take a long time to get back to the South Col (Camp 4) and it’s very likely we won’t hear much from them now which just means they are moving consistently and smoothly. We’ll update you again when they are safely back to Camp 4!
