Everyone is excited to hear
that the last man left standing on Team No Limits, Doug Tumminello, reached
the summit at approximately 6:00 AM. Doug and Passang Nuru Sherpa took in the
beauty and awe of their success and then began their descent for Camp
IV. Cheers for Doug are far reaching. In Base Camp, particularly Roger
Coffey, is elated to hear the news - so are Doug's family, friends and team
members that are now back at home. While Matt Tredway and Larry Rigsby are now
miles away from their friend and team member, they have remained with him in
spirit! Doug Tumminello, now a one man show for the team has taken the dream
of Team No Limits to the top. We are absolutely thrilled and so thankful!
The weather is reported to be
beautiful day - perfect for a summit!
Team No Limits affiliated
climber, Will Cross, also reached the summit at 5:20 AM. Will was accompanied
by his dynamic duo, Arita and Lhakpa Nuru Sherpas. We are still waiting for
word on affiliated climber, Juli. As soon as we are informed of her location
we will report back.
What a great day. What a day
to be thankful - and what a day to be inspired. "Every man will die but not
every man will truly live"
