Today I Summited Mt. Everest

Today I summited Mt. Everest. Just one month after I arrived at the North Pole. I think it's fair to say this was the most exhausting part of the entire project. Obviously the summit day was intense but it was just the cumulative week of two attempts, two windstorms, and having to stay at Camp 3...

I'm really looking forward to sharing all sorts of details about the climb, it was truly remarkable. I am back down at Camp 2 now. I could have stayed in Camp 4 but I opted to get back down low as soon as possible so I can get to base camp tomorrow and fly out of here to Alaska and finish this project up!

The thought of climbing another mountain right now is... a little bit daunting. Anyways, it's good to be back at Camp 2. Epic day. Tons more narrative/photos/videos to share but first and foremost I need to pass out in my tent right now and get some sleep.

Thank you so much to all the amazing people who sent me messages on inReach. All the support was just amazing. I'm so humbled and grateful.

Bedtime here at 21,000ft. Hard to believe I was at 29,000ft today. Crazy.
