Everest summit success!! The Madison Mountaineering team just arrived back in base camp after our successful climbs of Everest and Lhotse. Our team of 9 clients, 4 guides, and 17 Sherpas reached the top of Everest on May 20. Myself plus 3 clients & 3 Sherpas reached the top of Lhotse the next morning.
.
We were lucky as there were hardly any other climbers on the mountain, we had nice weather, route conditions and everyone who left camp 2 on our summit rotation made it to the top!!
.
This was my 12th Everest summit, and 4th time doing the ‘peak to peak’ Everest – Lhotse combo climb, going from the top of Everest to the top of Lhotse in a 24 hour period.
