FIRST EVEREST SUMMIT OF THE SEASON!!!
« on: May 15 2004, 21:42 »

The news have arrived at last: The first summiteers of Mount Everest 2004 are Chilean Ernesto Olivares Miranda (Makalu), Andrónico Luksic Craig, Misael Alvial Cid (K2 and Aconcagua), Sherpa Alden, Sherpa Angi, Sherpa Rama, Sherpa Shulding, Kiko, and British Annabelle Bond.

Expedition leader is Rodrigo Jordan (Everest via the Kangchung face).

Other climbers also on the summit are members of a commercial expedition; their details are unknown at this point. But they are all hugging, shaking hands, some are crying - and calling mom! The view down is breathtaking and the sky above is nearly black: This is the closest you get to Space on Earth!

Preliminary reports have Ed Viesturs and Apa Sherpa on summit today. That would be Apa Sherpas 14th summit

The climbing on the northside is not going too well, the winds are picking up, snow is expected...
