There was a huge party of family and friends at Heathrow airport to greet Rob and James off the plane last night, with a cheer that filled the terminal building and huge smiles all round. They went home to a small party and a much deserved night’s rest, and everyone is very relieved to see them home safe, albeit thinner and currently without much of their baggage! They now hope to get in touch with so many of those who have supported them, carry out interviews, prepare presentations and generally begin to readjust their lives around their future as holders of the record. We wish them a good few days’ rest first though… We also discovered that they are the 2nd youngest non-Sherpas in the world to have summited the mountain and we think around 10th if Sherpas are included.
