Everest 2007: Alexander
Abramov and his 7 Summits Club expedition returns to Everest in 2007. Alex,
unlike other low budget expeditions, brings a very large Sherpa team to the
mountain. The expedition is expected to attempt the North side of Everest
again. His Everest 2006 was heavily promoted by some as the the "$10000
expedition", but clients died.... Alex who works closely with the other
big commercial expeditions has had mixed results on Everest with a large
number of Summits but also deaths. Alex by all accounts is a nice
fellow... Stay tuned for Everest 2007...
Hundreds of other climbers are expected to attempt Everest
again this year...
