Team Safely Down in Base Camp

The team descended from Camp I (19,000 ft.), where they spent the night after the long summit day, arriving safely in Base Camp (15,030 ft.) just before 1 pm local time. Garrett called in from Camp I before they departed and reported that they had great weather and conditions for the summit climb, made good time, and the views were amazing. They will be packing up Base Camp and trekking out to Lukla tomorrow. Expect to see some photos as soon as they get some good network coverage. Congratulations!!
