May 13: Five Americans and two Sherpa reach summit
From Scott at Base Camp: Just spoke with
Tom. Tom says, "I am pleased to report that
five Americans and two Sherpa are standing on the
summit of Manaslu!!!!" Pictures are being taken;
hugs all around. Australians are on the top, too.
Weather is still good. Will turn around to head back
to Camp 3 shortly (probably 3 or 4 hour descent) to
spend the night. All sound great; cheers could
be heard over the radio. Congratulations to Tom, Dan,
Brian, Jerome, Mike, Kan Cha, Kusang, and the
Australians!!! Will send another update after talking
to them at Camp 3 later this evening.
