Volcanic Seven Summits Conquered!
As of approximately 3:22pm MDT, (from what I can tell on the tracker) Team Sidley reached the SUMMIT - HOORAY!! CONGRATULATIONS to the entire Mt. Sidley team!! They had perfect, sunny conditions today with no wind, which is pretty remarkable given where they are. Amazing!! Today was a BIG climbin… Amazing!! Today was a BIG climbing day. . . 4,700 vertical feet of elevation gain from high base camp to the summit. WOW! It's official. . . Roscoe is the FIRST American to complete the Volcanic Seven Summits + Seven Summits!! We are all sooo very proud of you David C. Roskelley!! In the photo below I'm not sure if I was able to capture the tracker as they were standing on the exact summit, but pretty dang close. The second photo was sent by teammate Andrew Hughes. . .showing one of the rope teams on the ascent, with the Basler DC3 plane in the background

That’s pretty cool indeed. Peakbagger only has one previous finisher listed so quite rare feat.
