Summit success!

Today 25 September all members and Sherpas left C4 at 03.00 in half moon light for the summit. I am pleased to report that the following people reached the true summit after Phurba had fixed the final knife edge ridge. This section is so narrow that we can only get a couple of people on the top at one time, hence the spread of times. It was a clear, relatively warm morning with no wind.

08.00 Bruce HASLER, Phurba Tashi, Ngawang Tenjing
08.08 Takayasu SEMBA, Ngima Chhiri
08.11 Susumu MOTOIKE, Tashi Tshering
08.21 Sohkichi SASAKI, Urken Lundup
08.25 Takahiro YODA, Pasang Nima
08.27 Hirohisa SUZUKI, Hiroyuki KURAOKA, Sonam Tashi, Yangjee (First Sherpani to summit Manaslu)
08.37 Herbert LUETHI, Son Dorgee
08.40 GlennJOHNSON, Dr Nima
08.48 Andrew BURTT, James CURLEY, Gyalgen Dorji
08.51 Robert FLEMING, Lhakpa Nuru
09.00 Stuart SMITH
09.01 Jeffrey SMITH Nima Tenzing
09.11 Caroline CUIF, Fura Chheten
