The Latest #OnEverest: They Summited!

The report is in from Base Camp, and our team made it to the summit! Ski mountaineer Hilaree O’Neill first stepped onto the summit at 8:15 a.m. Nepal time, followed by the rest of the team. They stayed on the summit for about an hour to collect data for Montana State University, then began their descent. Congratulations to the team! And here you have it: The first Instagram photo from the rooftop of the world. Follow the story natgeo.com/oneverest and #oneverest
