Kathmandu, May 12

An all black and brown team of climbers successfully climbed Everest on Thursday.

Seven members from the Full Circle team Manoah Ainuu, Eddie Taylor, Rosemary Saal, James Kagambi, Desmond Mullins, Evan Green and Thomas Moore climbed the mountain, inform sources at the base camp.

The team was supported by a team of experienced Nepali mountaineers from Shangri-La Nepal Treks.

The goal of the black and brown team was to inspire the young generation from the communities in the United States and the world that if they were focused, anything would be possible.

Through the summit, they also aim to promote the message of inclusivity in the mountains.

*Correction – The previous edition of the article mentioned that nine members of the team summited Everest. Only seven out of the 10 member team summit the mountain. Abby Dione, Phil Henderson and Frederick Campbell didn’t reach the summit.
