After a fairly tense day yesterday knowing that 9/10 of the Himex team summited but no details of who, I received a call from Chris this morning from Base Camp reporting that he had reached the summit.
Those of you who know Chris well will not be surprised to learn that he was the first of his team to make it to the top and he did it in a remarkable 6 hours 5 minutes, when the more ‘normal’ time is around 9 hours. A superhuman effort!
He was looking forward to a shower and a good meal and intends to sink a few beers in the white pod this evening.
Love to you all from a very proud Dovell household.
