Leader: Sam Noble
Congratulations to Tom and Alex who summited Island Peak this morning at 7:30am!
Last night the team had a bit of a party to say goodbye to some of the expedition crew who are now finished, and everybody really enjoyed themselves.
Today the team are heading towards Namche, on their way to Island Peak, which they plan to summit on Saturday 14th.
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!
Mera summiteers cake at Kote: Tom, Alex, Rinji and Dhana cutting the Mera Summit cake. Tired but very happy mountaineers.
The team now head to Island Peak.
The team and crew have successfully arrived at Khare (4850m), a new altitude record for some of the team members. Everyone is having a little post lunch siesta and then we will get the climbing equipment out and get ourselves sorted for climbing Mera Peak in the next few days.
The Team have arrived in Kathmandu, after a short delay with bad weather the team decided to Helicopter in to Lukla and are now on their way.
