  George Dijmarescu and Lakpa Sherpa still at high camp!


Mr and Mrs Sir Edmund Hillary with Lakpa Sherpa and her 15 year old sister who summited Everest in 2003 with George and Lakpa

Update May 31st, George and Lakpa did not go anywhere last night. They are going to need to head up or down, soon...

Update May 30th, 2005: High Winds at camp 2 on Everest! But George and Lakpa are doing fine, two of Lakpa brothers summited with the Russians yesterday, the one is the Sirdar of the expedition. george and Lakpa should be headed to camp 3 by the time you read this. Others up there include the second (or you could say third) part of the Russian team, The Indian "girls" as they appear to be known. The Indian army is also up there, maybe ahead of them...

Update May 28th, 2005:  George and Lakpa are heading up the mountain from ABC. George, despite what you might have read elsewhere falsely is NOT a guide, George is just a climber who likes to take this summer vacation from his construction business to go climb Everest. He has summited the last 6 years in a row, once without the use of bottled oxygen, something only Sherpas can claim... Lakpa hopes to summit for the 5th time this spring season. No other woman has summited more than twice. Lakpa, like George, climbs without guides. They are again part of the Asian Trekking Group for independent climbers where all climbers are on their own. George and Lakpa has one Sherpa to help. George has special plans for this year. Some of the special plans have been accomplished, but there is still much to do, but not much time left...

Update May 27th 2005: George and Lakpa were still at ABC yesterday morning. They are again part of the Asian Trekking Group for independent climbers where all climbers are on their own. George has one Sherpa to help. Interesting, Lakpa Brother, who has climbed with George and Lakpa the last 2 or so years is the sirdar of the Russian team. Another one of George old Sherpa helpers is sirdar of the British commercial team...
