26th May 3.30am uk time. SUMMIT SUCCESS!!!!!!!!!!!!

George has done it. He reached the summit at about 8.15 Nepali time. It sounds as if the weather is good with great views over Cho Oyu. Congratulations to all the team members who have made it so far and we hope the last few get there soon.

A big thank you to everyone who has helped George to achieve his dream including all the team at Adventure Peaks, leaders of earlier expeditions such as Ben Bradford, Robin Beadle and Tim Bird, Sasha from Elbrus and Cesar from Aconcagua, leonard Lymio for Kilimanjaro and of course Zac, Chris and Sonam for this time round. Just get my boy down safe now!

mark and I are elated and emotional.
