Tim Mosedale and Dorjee Gyalgen Sherpa are the first climbers this season to summit the tricky 7,861m Nuptse.
Mosedale and a team of climbing Sherpas have put in some backbreaking work since early May. They repeatedly broke trail to Camp 3 and painstakingly fixed ropes above 7,000m. They had anticipated a May 14 summit, but mixed weather slowed their progress. A summit attempt on May 16 fell short when the team ran out of daylight while fixing the route.
