I previously wrote a post on this British climber just before he was about to embark on his mobile mission. I can now inform you that Rod Baber has completed his hike of the huge mountain and successfully made two phone calls from Everest's "North Ridge".

After a month of preparation, Rod finally started the final ascent of the mountain on May 15th. Baber made the first call, describing the view from Everest's peak and he made the 2nd to his wife and kids. He has also claimed the record for the worlds highest text message, standing at 8,848 metres.
