October 13 A Very Happy and Successful Summit
Hello, this is Grant Meekins calling for the Berg Adventures Lobuche Peak expedition. I am very happy to announce that on October 12th the entire Berg Adventures Team successfully summitted Lobuche Peak . The climbing team consisted of Denio, George, Grant, Meagan and DaSona Sherpa. The team started at 5:00 in the morning and climbed steadily up the peak having crossed snow and ice through various traverses and crevasses winding our way between hanging ice cliffs and we reached the summit at about 2:00pm on the 12th of October. We descended and arrived at base camp tired but happy at about 6:00pm .
So we are all basking in the sunshine right now at advanced base camp in this beautiful location with great views of both Lobuche Peak and Ama Dablam. Our main goal for today is to dry-out our clothing and continue getting re-hydrated and we are going to descend to our base camp. So a very happy, successful summit of Lobuche Peak. Bye for now.
