The final expedition for the year has come and gone very successfully, with all the Himex members and also all the Adventure Consultants members reaching the summit. For us it was an uneventful season which is what we are always striving for.
Dan, Frank, Phurba and Ngima had arrived back safely at Manaslu base camp after their successful summit on Monday morning.
The same day, we also welcomed back Dean’s Adventure Consultants team who had spent three nights at camp one and also moved up through the steeper sections to enjoy a clear fine day up at camp 2.
As mentioned in the earlier newsletter, our team members summited at 1030 am on Monday 18th September, along with Phurba Tashi and Nigma Sona in perfect conditions.
It is a pleasure to announce from Himex base camp at 1030 this morning Nepal time, our climbers Dan Horne and Frank Seidel were standing on the summit of Mt Manaslu at 8163m.
Right beside Dan and Frank was our climbing Sirdar Phurba Tashi and Sherpa Nigma Sona, both talented long term Himex Sherpa and were instrumental in making this summit attempt safe and achievable.
