Simone Moro G2 Success

Congratulations to Simone Moro, Denis Urubko and Cory Richards after reaching the summit of G2. This is Simones 3rd 8000m peak in winter. I met Simone in the UK a few years ago when i took him around the UK for a lecture tour. A really nice guy and an amazing climber not only in the mountains but on the rock too. On our Scottish leg of the tour he bought me a Lochness stuffed toy......still got it.
The guys had a bit of an epic getting down due to storms but are now safely back in Base Camp. Well done.
