“I got on top and I spent about three minutes there, that was it, I spent no time up there. My body felt horrible like I had the worst hangover of my life,” said Richards.

Richards achieved his goal overnight Monday and started making his way down on Tuesday morning.

Ballinger said he decided not to summit because of the cold.
