The Ancient Historian

Ancient history, mountaineering, cycling and other outside adventures

…and now above the Hillary step and near the top

Sorry, I was meaning to go to bed, but I am glued to the news. FirstAscent very near, and I guess a whole lot of other people too. Lots of folks summiting this morning as I write this.

These climbers deserve a bit more press; they are making it seem easy, but there are great athletes at work here

Ed Viesturs explains the last bit of the climb; a piece of cake 😉

You can see how daunting the ridge is to the Hillary step on the Firstascent blog.
