First Ascent guide Melissa Arnot has successfully summited Mt. Everest for the third time. Melissa and photographer/ climber David Morton called the Eddie Bauer First Ascent headquarters from the South Col after “a very successful summit day.”
Arnot and Morton began their journey from Kathmandu nearly two months ago, and have been climbing as an independent team with the support of two climbing Sherpa, a cook and two Base Camp staff. Despite rough weather earlier this month, the two have been able to acclimatize at their own pace. We’d like to congratulate them both on their success and wish them safe travels on their descent. Stay tuned to hear more from Arnot as she returns to Base Camp to celebrate.
Keep checking the Born Out There blog for updates on Melissa and Dave’s progress as they descend to Base Camp.
