The Summit Ridge of Mt. Everest

Mike Hamill’s team left Camp 4 on the South Col of Everest at 8:30pm May 18th (Nepal Time) for the summit of Everest. The weather is good, but with forecasts of wind picking up in the next 24 hours. Many other climbers on the mountain are taking advantage of this narrow weather window, so Mike’s team left earlier than normal in an attempt to stay ahead of the crowds. Wish them luck, and you can follow their progress on the IMG site: mountainguides.com
