I reached the summit of Manaslu on September 25 2014 at 9:26 am having left C4 at 4:30 am.  Manaslu is the 8th highest mountain in the world and the summit is 26,759 feet (8,156m). This trip was arranged by Himalayan Experience ‘Himex’ and Russell Brice.  Temperatures -18; winds 18 mph.  I was honored to carry an Explorers Club Flag to the summit. There was 1 death on Manaslu this season, a Japanese guide.
