Chris Davenport Reports on his Mt. Everest Summit Adventure
A few weeks ago, we reported on Chris Davenport's exciting descent down the Lhotse Face near Mt. Everest. As you may recall, Davenport's primary purpose for being on the trip was not to ski, but rather to act as a guide for a client; their mission: summit Mt. Everest.
Mission status: accomplished. Below, we've posted a blurb from Chris' blog. To get the full scoop, and to check out his stunning photo gallery, we invite you to head on over to his site.
Sitting here now in a hotel in Bangkok reflecting on the enormity of the last two months is somewhat overwhelming. We summited just 5 days ago but already it seems somewhat far off. Our summit push was intense at times, yet spread over a week. During that time I shot so many photos and a ton of video, and am just now able to go through it all. Neal and I will be working on a documentary film project of the trip this summer, so stay tuned for that. In the meantime I relish the wonderful memory of the trip and already look forward to more adventures in the Himalaya. Congrats to our client Ephi on a solid effort and great summit. Way to go!
A few climbers coming down the Hillary Step as we prepare to ascend it. You can see guide Bill Allen checking our client Ephi's O2 flow.
