Mission Accomplished...

I am delighted to announce (on their behalf) that at 0720 hrs (local) on 23rd May 2010, Matt Snook and Pete Sunnucks achieved their dream of standing on the roof of the world. The text message sent home simply read, "we've done it!!"

What makes their feat even more impressive is that out of the nineteen people on the expedition, only four reached the summit as a result of extreme unseasonal weather, equipment failure and illness. The boys have also achieved a first for their charities, Help for Heroes and The John Thornton Young Achievers Foundation.

Both are in excellent spirits and are full of thanks for your support and best wishes which have carried them through some very tough times over the past few months. They expect to be back in Kathmandu on Thursday 27th for a beer, a shower and some phones calls home (in that order).

Proud, happy, thrilled..
