“After a very long expedition, we were the last team on the mountain.
“There were no more days left in the season.
“But we didn’t wait for nothing, the weather was maybe the best of the season.
“We were delayed on our start because of hard winds, but around 8 in the evening we left for the summit.
“After around 5 hours we arrived at the balcony.
“Later when we arrived at the south summit, the sun was starting to rise at the horizon.
“After the last push, we got to the summit.
“It was not crowded, but we saw most of our team members on the summit.
“A good moment to share with the people we lived with for the last 2 months.
“What a special moment to be on the top of the world!
