Team Updates

Sightless Summit Goals
Goal 1 Sea to Summit Ride

Michael Neal and Bryan Hill ride from the Indian Ocean to the high altitude village of Lukla, Nepal where they'll meet the rest of the team. If all goes well, the pair will set a world record for the Fastest Known Time from sea level to the summit of Mt. Everest. Fingers crossed!

Goal 2 Summit Mt Everest

From Lukla, the full Sightless Summits team (Lonnie, Michael and Bryan) will trek to Everest Base Camp and then on to its summit. If successful, Lonnie will be the fourth blind person to summit Everest!

Goal 3 Summit Lhotse

After a successful Everest summit, the team will be poised to climb the last portion of the world's fourth tallest mountain. If successful, Lonnie will be the first blind person to climb both mountains. What an accomplishment!

coming soon:
