Everest 2005: Mountain Madness Expedition
March 25 - May 31
Christine Feld Boskoff CEO
of Mountain Madness
Since 1994, Mountain Madness
has led 29 team members on successful expeditions to Everest's summit.
This year's Everest expedition will approach the mountain from the Normal
Route--ascending through to the South Col from the Khumbu Glacier, and
continuing to the summit via the Southeast ridge.
Benegas will be leading Mountain Madness' 2005 Everest Expedition.
Willie, 34, together with his twin brother, Damien, have a history of
climbing including an ascent up a new route up Patagonia's West Face of
Pilquitron (VI, 5.9, A3) which is still unrepeated.
In addition to his many and varied climbing
& trekking accomplishments, Willie
gathers a huge sense of satisfaction from introducing others to the
wide-world of mountain experience.
