Wilco van Rooijen announced last week he will attempt Mt Everest from the
North side in spring 2004 without oxygen. He will go with Rex Snelders
(attempt on Manaslu 2003) and possibly Ron Doorakkers (McKinley 2003) then
descend with a paraglider from the summit!!
You might recall Wilco from Everest 2002, when we covered him and
Hans van der Meulen. Hans van
der Meulen and Wilco are below. Our coverage of Hans van der Meulen and Wilco
