Dear Family & Friends:
This final set of photos shows (i) the Expedition Permit for the South side climb of Mt. Everest this year, (ii) the list of climbers and Sherpas for the North side climb, (iii) my Summit Certificate for the North side climb, (iv) a fabulous photo of the Triangular Face of the mountain the instant I touched the summit on May 25 at 9:45 am, (v) my Sherpas and my beloved friend, Mingma (the Sirdar), at Chinese Base Camp, and (vi) our celebration dinner at Kilroy’s restaurant in Kathmandu.
My dear friend John Dahlem, took the Triangular Face photo from his home in Orange County using a web camera mounted on the summit of Kala Pattar, which is on the South side of the mountain. John summitted Mt. Everest with his son, Ryan, in 2010.
In the next few days, I will post a movie documenting my 2014 climb.
