Live on Everest

Team Jordan Summits Mt. Everest

The team just called in and confirmed that they are standing on top of Mt. Everest - the highest peak in the world.  Their dreams have now come true.  Everyone sounded unbelievably happy.  They also thanked everyone who supported them and encouraged them throughout their journey. 

I’m sure we’ll hear more from them soon!

    I only started following the GPS recently at work after reading oodles of earlier commentary, saw you passed the first step during my afternoon, thought “oh, they try summiting today?” (after reading the recent report of you reaching Camp 2!) then came back later, already you are on the way down!

    Good luck for the rest of the trip, and looking forward to following your progress to Antarctica now!

  • Rock on J, P n K!Safe returns!

    What an amazing feat, not only summiting, but all the climbing and preparation that preceded Everest. Much admiration and best wishes, from a 71 year old woman who still climbs, but NOT like this. Bravo!!

    I’m following you from Spain (Europe). Here in Europe there is an interesting debate about allowing youth people to do this kind of things. I think tat people like you shows how great the human being can be. Congrats to your father also and the sherpas. And there are a lot of people that we love the mountain. But you could be a reference in the western world.
