Summits on Everest and Lhotse!

We are happy to announce that eleven members of the Jagged Globe 2012 Everest team summited Everest this morning (Leader, David Hamilton (6th summit), climbers; Cian, Warner (first Costa Rican to summit Everest), Ian, Phil and Nick, plus Sherpas, Mingma (18th summit), Thundu (5th summit), Ang Di, Phurbu (3rd summit) and Tsering (5th summit).
They are all back at the South Col sleeping now. Bruno decided to turn around on the Triangular Face with Pumba and Brett reached c8,500m with Pasang, before descending.
The team left the South Col at 2015. David, Warner and Cian were on the summit at 0600, Phil and Ian summited at 0700 and Nick at 0800.

On Lhotse, Adele summited with Kilu Sherpa very quickly (not sure of exact time), having left Camp 4 at 0015. She is on her way down to Camp 2.

David said that the route was not as busy as they had expected. We’ll update when we have more details. For now, congratulations to the teams!

    Congratulations to the Irish team! I reached base camp a month ago & have been following your progress ever since. Delighted to hear the good news. Amazing achievement. Well done!

  2. Congratulations Cian & all the team
    You were probably disapointed last weekend when you had to withdraw all the way from camp 3 to EBC but in hindsight it was the best & safest decision to have taken.
    You are lucky to be with such a competent outfit in Jagged Globe
    If we’re ever in Kathmandu again we’ll have great fun looking for your signature on the walls & ceiling in Rum Doodle
    On a sadder note last weekend my sister got word her 19 year old son had gotten a brain tumour He was working with his older brother on an island north of Brisbane where he was helicoptered to hospital
    Keep him in your thoughts on your trek back to Lukla especially in Tengboche where you might come across a devout Buddhist monk who could help him make a full recovery
    We’re looking forward to hearing all about your great adventure to “The Top of the World”

    Namaste
