Update: James and his teammate Steve summited Everest North Side safely on May 23 at 5:30 a.m. He wrote “It was the craziest weather season, causing a very short window and thus a night time summit (we climbed early to avoid the lines on the second step – the strategy which really allowed us to succeed).” Pictures coming soon.

Audio interview has been posted to WRAL.com

When we first met James Wilde he had completed 5 of the Seven Summits. This Raleigh native had us riveted to our seats at Cameron Village as he shared stories from the climbs. Now only Everest awaits as he sits in Base Camp North. Follow the adventure tonight on WRAL and learn how you can support his clean water initiative GlobalH20 that helps supply clean water throughout the world.
