Yesterday afternoon at 5:02pm, 9 Sherpas summitted, being the first to summit on the South side of Everest since 2013. Amazing. They also finished the highly anticipated last 50 vertical meters of fixed rope from the South Summit to the Summit. This officially opens up the summit to for the season on the South side!! Exciting!

A number of teams are in position to try and sneak in on Friday the 13th. From what I know, that's Jagged Globe and Adventures Global, with Madison Mountaineering a day or two behind. Let's see!
