Everest 2007: SummitClimb Tibet Everest 2007: Arnold calls in
This is Arnold again, the leader of the SummitClimb Everest-Tibet expedition.
Today Michael, Phil, Kevin and Martin came down safely back to ABC from their
summit the previous day. They had it kind of hectic coming down, but because
of the help of Yun Dan and Awang they all made it back in ABC safely without
serious injuries. Our North Col people had a front seat for all of this and
tomorrow they will go for their summit of the North Col. Also Tunc, Mustafa,
Walter and Matt will take off from ABC for their summit attempt and hope to
summit on the 21st with the help of Tsering and Qiang. Everything is going
very well and I hope tomorrow I can call in a nice story of our summits of the
North Col. That's it until then, bye bye.
