Update 10 - Team arrived at basecamp

January 18, 2021

17th Jan - The full team are now back at basecamp. All safe and sound. Thank you all for your kind messages. A big thank you for the ground team at the basecamp, specially my brother Dawa Sherpa. We have some admin to do now, organising all of our kit and equipment that we brought down from the mountain.

It has been an overwhelming journey. We feel grateful to be a part of history for humankind but equally very deeply saddened to hear that we have lost a friend Sergi Mingote, a member of another team. We extend our profound sympathies to Sergi’s family, colleagues and friends. Rest in peace my brother !

18th Jan - Leadership isn’t always about what you want. Building an inspiring vision is key. The decision to hit the summit was a tough one. It was one of the hardest push ever, no denial. There had been close calls where team members nearly turned around due to the extreme cold. But everyone was pushing themselves to the edge of their limits for a purpose; a common goal, to make the K2 winter happen, to make the last greatest mountaineering challenge happen, with a positive power and honour.

Standing on the summit, witnessing to the sheer force of the extremities of mother nature was exhilarating. Thank you for the support we’ve received from people all around the globe, it gave us fire in our chest to make this goal a reality.
