On May 19, noon time, Nathalie and Paul reached the summit of Everest. Pierre took the decision of turning around less than 100 meters from the summit. This was Gabriel's first experience as project manager, basecamp manager, expedition leader, all we can say: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! Thanks guys for this incredible teamwork: Sherpas Lhakpa, Namgyal and Pema plus our staff at basecamp (Pasang, Nima 1, Nima 2, Gelu, Karma) and Garry for the weather forecasts.
