A safe end to a High Adventure Expedition

The High Adventure Expedition team gathered in basecamp on Friday for a celebratory meal and cake. Most mountaineering accidents occur as climbers descend from their highpoints on a mountain. The entire High Adventure Expedition team has safely descended through the icefall and is now gathered at Everest basecamp. In high altitude mountaineering, safety is mandatory while summits are optional. Even though they are leaving the mountain without having the full team summit, the expedition was well represented by Pemba’s ascent of Mt. Everest.
