Elia, Tom, and I get the full benefit of a twin otter departure from Lukla, the world’s most dangerous airport. It lifts off the runway shortly before the runway ends and the cliff drops off. After an hour’s flight, we touch down at Kathmandu. Throughout the day, we text the group for updates on the West Col attempt. Dakota, Hunter, Fred Williams, Dr. Jackson, and one other jumper successfully complete the West Col jump. Tom, Elia, and I, though jealous, couldn’t be happier for our brothers.
