First Cumberland to Conquer Everest

We have just recieved word that Amanda Richmond has successfully reached the summit of Mt Everest. She and her group reached the summit at 4am (Nepal time) on Wednesday May 20, and were treated to seeing sunrise from the highest place on earth.

Congratulations to Amanda and all those climbing with her. We don't know if she passed Sir Ranulph Fiennes on her descent on not (as he reached the summit the following day as the press seem happy to tell us), but we are very happy to hear that the climb has been successful and everyone has had a safe journey.

For more information on Amanda's group you can see their progress at Jagged Globe.
