Back to reality...
So we finally made it back to Kathmandu. We've had a well earned wash, shave and cool beer and finally got round to writing up what happened on summit day. It became apparent as we returned to Camp 3 after Summit Day that there were a number of incidents which took place along the route to other members of the team, in some cases preventing them from making the summit. What follows are accounts, as best as we can remember, from Pete and I of our 'Summit Day', no-one elses. In the next few days we will add blogs for the 'Journey back to BC' (which was not as straight forward as either one of us would have liked) and 'Final Reflections' (which gives us both a chance to share some things we've learned and things that have been on our minds).
In the meantime, we're looking forward to getting home, seeing friends and family and escaping the politics that surround these incidents.
Thank you to everyone for your support, messages and prayers. We could not have done this without you!
Matt and Pete
