Justin Merle called on the sat phone to say the climbers successfully climbed Lobuche. He reports that the snow conditions were excellent up high and the weather has been good. They used about 400m of fixed rope going up to the ridge and had a nice summit day.
Now they have now descended down to Dingboche for a couple rest days before moving up to Ama Dablam BC.
