Amazing work to mother/daughter team Jane and Gabby for summiting together and Gabby for becoming the youngest Australian to summit. Gabby and guide Tendi will attempt Lhotse tomorrow morning to complete the double in under 24 hrs. Gabby and Tendi will become our 5th an 6th climbers to do so this season if successful. Jessica and Jane will descend to Camp 2.
Manal and guide Anup will ascend to the South Col tomorrow.
How about this summit pic from guide Pemba Gyelje from our 1st wave of climbers?! There’s nothing like the feeling of the sun hitting your face as you crest Everest’s summit after a long, cold night of climbing! #

International Mountain Guides

Great news overnight from our team on Mount Everest and Lhotse. IMG Climbers George Vojteck Pesek and Fura Gyalzen Sherpa reached the summit at 7:05am. What a huge accomplishment just one day after summiting Mount Everest. They have been climbing strong the entire season. Congratulations to George and Fura on another great climb!

Team 2 had a great day as well with everyone moving up the Lhotse Face to Camp 3. They will be up early to continue up to the South Col and put themselves in position to Summit on the 15th. We have two more climbers who took a well deserved and additional rest day at Camp 2 who will head up to Camp 3 tomorrow.
All is well on Mount Everest and Lhotse!

I summited Everest on 13th May!
I had my all bet on this day from the start, even without a weather update yet.
Well that was the one
It all went by so quickly… without covid it’s simpler. It took me 29 days from Kathmandu to summit Everest with natural acclimatization and no carrier for my personal material!
38 hours of effort from Camp 3 to the summit then back down to Camp 2.
All this intertwined with a surreal problem in the South Neck at 8,000m… An enormous flight of oxygen.
Sadly we had to adapt.
I climbed Everest without guide, but I don’t forget Mingma Guide who was 2h downstream with oxygen in case of problems. 🙏
Unfortunately I was short for a good while to the summit.
Felt very out of breath, way too much.. but at the top a friend tells me that I have “50” left, so wide… but I looked again and it was 0
Great moment of solitude at the summit.
‘I need some ox! , I’ve been at 0 for a long time! “
My sentence was taken as a joke at this point 🤣
But it’s at the moment of rolling on the floor like Neymar that the comrades started to understand…
“Do you want a bottle?” “
I was able to recover fast enough at 4L/min volume for 5 minutes to take some photos 😉
➡️ 1hour and 45 minutes to the summit! ❤️
Of course there were tears !!!
Because Everest is not just a mountain.
I’m the French fastest to chain Everest twice… but now I’ll leave her alone for a few years
Pasang Tenzing Sherpa
Safely back to base camp after leading successfully leading AH Everest on 12th & Lhotse on 13th May, it was hard leading two 8k within 24hrs
