  • Greetings from tha lowlands
    • The 7 summits pages

Hi all, it is almost Everest season. I will not be there to help Alex this year, but he is a big boy now ;-)
One of the climbers in the 7summits team is Bruce and he will be sending updates about the team to 7summits.com. His first is his introduction:

“Last year, around this time, I registered on the Forum. I did this to follow the progress of a very good friend and fellow adventurer, Ronnie Muhl. Ronnie will be back this year to finish off what he started last year!

I had no idea that I would be going to Everest to join Alexander Abramov on his North Col Programme this year!  I embarked on an Alpine course with the New Zealand Alpine Club and trained and recently completed IronMan NZ…I am sure I am now well equipped for my personal summit!

With the assistance of Harry, we have created a forum within 7Summits where I will write reports from the mountain on my exploits as well as those of the other team members. It is my intention to write these as a journal and to bring in as much human interest as I can and with their support, I hope to give insights on all of the members.

There are many who will never experience Everest, base camp or advanced base camp and I will endeavour to report on daily existence at these camps and turn the mundane into something more exciting!

I look forward to your input and any comments you may wish to make…and if there is anything in particular you wish to know regarding life in camp, I will attempt to answer your queries.

Bruce Matthews”

Hi Bruce,

all the best with your climb up the NC and hope to see some fantastic reports from your hand. This year I will even take the laptop with me to bed :-).
Gave a hug to Alex and Ronnie.
