Led by @solitude66 @christian_llivicura @nachoespinosaandrade, the team summited at 7:20am. It was the first high altitude climb for many members of the team and they topped off the experience with a summit! @samkieck from Alpenglow’s operations team is part of the group and after the climb, he reports being “totally addicted.” After accomplishing a 5,897m peak, we’re excited for the team members to keep pushing up to higher peaks. Let’s keep climbing! #climbskitrek#adventuredoneright @ Volcán Cotopaxi https://www.facebook.com/alpenglowexpeditions/

Mera Peak & Ama Dablam // Summit push photos...& now too Lukla!
This morning we said our goodbyes to our Basecamp crew, the incredible high altitude climbing Sherpas & the members of Tim Mosedale’s team whom we’d shared Basecamp with for the past 7 days.
It’s a strange few days these as we head back to Lukla, then Kathmandu, then home. For the past 3+ weeks our little team has been on a huge journey together. In one way it’s sad that it’s slowly coming to an end. In another it’s a time of celebration and reflection on what’s been a utterly superb trip.
