Last year we counted over 480 Summits of Everest. Soon we
will have 100's more. We expect over 500 in 2007! Maybe many more... In the
next week unless things change expect 100's of summits.... There are now so
many to count ... well 2 of recent note.
Pemba Dorje Sherpa, climbing to the summit without oxygen
and Furba Sherpa from Dolakha district climbed to the summit according to
their people for the eight ruling parties in Nepal and put
portraits of Apostle of Peace Gautam Bhuddha at the summit of 8,848 meters
height. Pemba Dorje of course claimed the world record three years ago by
summiting Everest in just eight hours ten minutes. He was a member of the
Noguchi Expedition this season. This was Pemba 6th summit of Everest...
