Scott, called home via satellite phone from the summit of Mt. Everest to report that he and Cliff Dargonne were standing on top of the world at 29,035 feet, along with sherpas Jangbu and Minga Chirri!

He said they climbed through a storm that blew in making the going tough with lots of wind on the summit ridge. "We couldn't even see the main summit from the south summit...looked up to see patches of blue sky and decided to push on," he recalled. Kevin Neal and Sean McEvoy accompanied them to the south summit before making the difficult decision to descend. They are all resting safely at camp IV at this hour.

Adventures International is a small, personal, US outfit led by Scott Woolums who has now guided and successfully summited Everest for the second time.
