5/20/09 10:13 pm Yura Summited Everest!!!!!!!!!!!!

Congratulations! The first Pritzker had reached the top of the world! The 2 months odyssey is almost over!!!

Yura just called with the good news. He had summited Everest at about 8:10 pm Chicago time. It took him 8 hours to get there. He was there ahead of his group and was able to experience the mountain 2 hours before everyone else from his group got there. But we all know Yura, right? If he is pushing, he is pushing all the way up!

Coming down is not an easy task after being on the mountain for that long. It is about 9 hours climb back. He made it to the 4th camp where he will be resting after this very hard yet very exciting day. We are hoping to hear from him again from the camp 3 later or tomorrow morning. But who can sleep now anyway?!
