Congratulations are in order to Emily Harrington and Sam Elias who both stood on top of Mt. Everest not too long ago as a part of their North Face/Nat Geo expedition. Say what you will about the current state of climbing on Everest, what with this season making news for expeditions canceling their season due to bad conditions, massive crowding and several deaths, but summiting Everest is still a pretty cool accomplishment. Best of luck to Harrington and Elias on a safe passage back to base camp and then back home.
