A summary of events from the slopes of Everest on 23rd May 2022.
Taken from Social Media and Team Pages – updated throughout the day
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.
