Everest Fantasy Ridge 2006 Expedition

Update on EverestNews.com and great pic of 2nd half of Fantasy Ridge.

The Fantasy Ridge route on Mt. Everest has never been successfully climbed before. Mallory said that this route could only be climbed in the imagination.

Everest Fantasy Ridge update

Dave Watson has called off the Fantasy Ridge attempt.  Not enough man power, not enough Sherpa power and just too dangerous....
For now it will have to remain as Mallory stated, a route that can only be climbed in the imagination.

Watson did summit Mt. Everest on May, 11 2006 from the north side. This is his 2nd Everest summit.

Update from Dave Watson: Why the Fantasy Ridge attempt was called off.  Simply, it was out of condition.
