Great job to the team guides and especially Sherpa.  Have followed the adventure everyday and it was exciting cant imaging what it was like there.  Climbed with RMI last summer and so impressed with the attention to deals. But our guides.  RMI is the best. 
Great job

Congrats to Dave, team and all the Sherpas. Dave, I was with you on Denali in 1989 on the first trip there on which you served as chief guide. Your good decisions and great leadership have served you well over the years.  Tis is great news.
