Costa Mesa, CA

I just got an e mail from Dawa at Base Camp.  Here it is:

I just got a radio call from mingma about 10 mins ago saying that they are at the hillary step. Bill is going to be at the summit within the next hour. We are all waiting for that final radio call to confirm it.

The wind is pretty bad today but it got better as the climb commenced. Bud turned back at the balcony with Pemba Tenjing but told Puchhanga to head on up for the summit.

I wish I could have posted earlier, but I had nothing to post, just been waiting all day.
