  Mt. Everest 2005: Monterosa Everest 2005 from Tibet Update


Update

Update 5/14/2005: Call from Camp 1 Friday May 13, sunset. Beautiful view of Everest, light wind. 12 members of the Monterosa expedition are still working the mountain, including Mr. MacIntyre from South Africa and his sherpa. Jocelyn Dufour and Nick Nielsen are at Camp 1 this evening. They have already slept at Camp 2 during their previous acclimatization climb, and are hoping to go to Camp 3 and possibly higher as the weather and all the other factors permit. Vincent Waters is following them by one or two days, and will continue to share camp with them. The wait at Base Camp was long, climbers are excited to be moving. Let's keep our fingers crossed

Update 4/21/2005: message yesterday from ABC (Thursday morning Tibet Time): On April 21st, Jocelyn Dufour and Nick Nielsen (and possibly others) are making their way up to camp 1 (7000m)  to spend the night.  They plan to explore the route to camp 2 (7500m) on April 22 and descend to ABC, then BC for a rest.

Update 4/14/2005: This group of independent climbers which includes the Greenland Everest expedition (Mr. Nick Nielsen) is moving up the mountain along with the rest of them.

Update 4/6/2005: China Base Camp, Thursday April 7, 7:30am, Very little snow at BC. Leaving for Middle Camp after breakfast. Everyone is acclimatizing well.
