We have the first summits of 2013 as the Sherpas have fixed the line to the
summit from the South Col opening the gates to all the teams. Similarly, the
Tibetan rope fixers on the North are reported to be close.
Climbing with the Sherpas from the South Col was David Tait (UK) making his
fifth Everest summit. He was able to reach the summit on Friday, May 10.
On the South it took 13 Sherpas from 8 different teams working together to get
to the summit. They are reported to be returning to Camp 2 now. The
winds were reported to be moderate and temperatures cold.
This team of sherpas were able to put anchors in for a second rope on the
Hillary Step to avoid delays associated with this notorious section.
