Everest Tibet Summit Report

27 May 2014 -


Hi Everyone! This is Scott Patch with an Everest Tibet Dispatch for today the 27th of May.

Yesterday, the entire team made it down to ABC (Advanced Base Camp). We had a great, post summit, afternoon…. with the entire team sitting around the dining tent reminiscing of the summit push ... especially summit day! It was a great afternoon with good food and many cold drinks.

Today part of the team opted to stay at ABC to rest one more day before heading down to BC (Base Camp) ... with some members making the 21k journey today. It was good day to travel to BC, with an added 20cn of snow, last night, it made for easy trekking out the East Rongbuk glacier moraine! The added snow probably cut down the trek from ABC to BC by 1 to 2 hours!!!

The weather has been pretty snowy the last 36 hours ... temperatures are warm, but the wind can chill things off fast. Thankfully we don't have much wind with the snow!

Our summit experience is one that none of us will forget very soon .... magical, inspiring, exhausting and truly a once in a lifetime experience!! More info and pictures to come .....

Thank you so much for following our expedition. Over and out!!
