She Did It!

Lucille phoned on the Sat Phone after summitting Mt McKinley, and with quick breaths described how she still has an "in" with the weather gods. Despite concerns early in the day about high winds possibly stopping their attempt, she says they had "a sunny blue sky with no wind at the summit."
They returned to camp 5 to sleep, but over the next couple of days you can expect a rapid descent. Probably camp 3 today, and base camp tomorrow. They will probably be sleeping in their own beds by Friday night.
