8718 meters

They are now higher than any other mountain in the world besides the one they are on.

Look at that sentence.  Pretty cool in my view.

This is less than 100 feet from the South Summit.

I'm projecting right around midnight here on the East Coast.

The guys are doing great.  Slower than projected.  We just heard about a climber evac both we don't know who, where, when or why (how was probably a helicopter)--perhaps this has slowed them down a bit.  It could be crowds, weather or any other factor.  We don't know.

That said, my view is they are doing great and should be on the final approach from the South Summit to the true Summit very shortly.

Go guys!  Onward and upward!
