After 12 hours of intense work, at 9 am local time three climbers along with two guides and sev­en sher­pas reached the sum­mit of Mount Ever­est. A fourth mem­ber, Christo­pher Hill, made it as far as the Bal­cony at 27,500′(8400 m) and described it thus­ly: Last three days were prob­a­bly the most chal­leng­ing I’ve ever had.” Christo­pher reports the team is safe­ly back to Camp II.

More details to come; in the mean­time enjoy some strik­ing sum­mit day pho­tos from Ossy, and con­grat­u­la­tions to the expedition!
