Alex, Tom, Ang Dorge and Dhana on the summit of Mera Peak at 7.30am on Friday 6th April. An amazing time to the summit from high camp of just 4 hours with trail breaking required all the way in the deep fresh snow. Beautiful clear weather with light winds but very cold air temperatures. Well done guys – you did us proud!
