Stuart, Mike, Kamal, and Rolphe reached the summit today. The others turned around near 18K due to altitude issues and cold hands.  Everybody now safely back at High Camp resting, hydrating and preparing for the descent down to Base Camp over the next few days. Way to go Team 7!

Update: Richard has turned off his In Reach to conserve battery after reaching the Summit on June 28th. They have begun their descent.

Well done team 7 on your summit. What a great effort by you all. Must admit we were a little worried when we couldn't see you descending, but are relieved to know you are now down at High Camp. Looking forward to you returning to NZ Mike. Well done
