According to the report, the Sherpas topped out at 3:25 PM local time. The two men who reached the top are Namgyal Sherpa, with the Project Himalaya team, and Pemgya Sherpa, with Arun Treks. This marks the first summits from the South Side this season and means that the ropes are fixed all the way to the top, meaning that that the other teams in position should now be ready to make their final assaults.
Project Himalaya is one of the teams reported to be in Camp 4, along with the Indian Army Team, the Nepalese Women’s Team, and The Peak Freaks. Expect those teams to be the first to top out later tonight or first thing tomorrow. It won’t be long now!
