Lobuche East Summit Success!

Tim just called in to say....

At 06:30 the entire who made it to the final third Peak Freak team summited the false summit and at 08:00hrs NPT they stood on
Our solar cooker
top of the true summit and are now just below the summit enjoying a bite to eat. They're pretty tired and happy with their accomplishments. They'll be down at base camp in about 3 hours from now.

Romano made it up and summited. The rest at Lobuche village served him well.

Karsung Sherpa, Desh and crew have the soup on on the solar cooker heating up for their arrival.

The past three years on Everest we've been using this to supplement the use of fuel as part of our green theme. We haven't seen any other teams using it yet and hope it will be of the norm in the future. It just makes sense. Tim first saw the one being used near Gorak Shep and made a replica of it. Now they have a more upscale one.

 The final summit of Peak Freaks Triple Crown 2014" a job well done.  Photos will coming out sometime tomorrow when they start moving down the valley and get on wifi.

Congratulations team!
