  SummitClimb Lobuche expedition - Team summits


Hello, this is the voice dispatch for the SummitClimb Everest View
Glacier School. Today is April 15th and the day after summit day. My name is Greg Wolski and I'm calling from the basecamp of Lobuche.

Yesterday 5 members and 2 guides reached the summit. Chris, Martina, Jacek, David and Greg, along with Max and Abi summited. The other 2 members backed up and returned to basecamp. The view from the top was impressive. Peaks we were staring up at the Northeast were Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse, which still looked down upon us.

That night was very quiet. Everyone was tired and slept well. This morning we are all good and happy. Last night we also celebrated Nepali New Year with traditional crumb cake.

A helicopter landed at our camp to evacuate a climber from another team with a broken ankle. Unfortunately, one of our friends from the team left with him to Kathmandu. He promised to meet us there for pizza and beer.

Today the group is heading down to Pangboche. David is splitting up to go to Gokyo and also some of the other team members are heading for the 4 day extension to Everest basecamp.

Continuing with the yeti story, there are still no visible signs of a yeti except the sounds and smells from some tents. We all look forward to getting back to Kathmandu to celebrate.

On a serious note, the Polish members would like to thank the team for their respect on the recent tragedy in Poland.

We hope to see you all in a couple of days. Thank you very much for
following the news.
