“I’ve been awake 86 hours straight, starved and thirsty, walked among corpses, stopped feeling my fingers and toes, and been exposed to 100 mph wind gusts with temperatures hovering in the negative 40 degrees. But none of this stopped me from going step by step to the top of the world. I always knew that Everest had to be climbed with the mind and an unshakable iron will, physical strength would be just a detail.” He wrote on Social Media.

A huge summit wave is underway on Everest.
