Island Peak – summit 6189m

From Sean – ‘We reached the summit at 9.15.  It was one helluva thrash as climate change has destroyed the headwall which used to be all ice and snow but is now mixed terrain.  It’s been a 15 hours mission and we are now in Chhukung.  We are hoping to push to Everest Base Camp […]
