On Thursday, I finally got home and I have to say that the ‘re-entry’ has been rough – between jetlag, lots of emails and everything that piled up over the last month. I miss the simplicity of life in the mountains and the comradery with the team. Of course, having clean clothes, a shower and different food are also very nice.
I wanted to thank you for an AWESOME trip and for being so flexible and putting me on the Nepal trip within a few hours. This allowed me to still have a great trip and almost achieve my goal of reaching 7000m (if only it hadn’t been for the closure of the Lhotse face on my ‘summit’ day). I had a really good time and an amazing experience. It was fantastic to see what it’s like to climb the “big” mountains in the Himalayas…and the Khumbu icefall was something else all-together. I also can’t believe I spent a week above 6000m.
I would like to thank the great SummitClimb team leader! Who gave us lots of freedom and super flexibility. Their many years of experience showed at every moment – from making sure we were safe on the mountain to the schedule/itinerary. I always felt in very good hands with the SummitClimb guides. You put together a great team with great people and an outstanding Sherpa team.
Please say ‘hi’ to everyone from me. I miss you guys and wish I could have stayed to climb to the top with you guys!
All the Best! Stay safe! Good luck to everyone! I’m rooting for you!!! - Magnus
