  More Summits and deaths in Nepal


At least 14 summited Everest including veteran guide Dave Hahn. Dave's expedition to have Kit DesLauriers become the first woman to ski from Everest Summit is a success, while Kit did not do a complete ski descent and therefore those press agents need to be careful with those claims... The humble Hahn summited again with his clients, Kit, her husband Rod and veteran climber Jimmy Chin all did a partial ski descent adding to the several climbers in the last few years who has done so. Korean climbers were also on the mountain, but details are unknown. All were attempting the standard route from the south side. The 3000 plus Everest summits continue to grow....

On October 7, 2000, It was a historical day for Slovenian. Davo Karnicar, of Jezersko, Slovenia, accomplished an uninterrupted ski descent from the top of the world's highest mountain, Mount Everest (8,848m). At 8 a.m. local time (4.15 CEST), Davo started his historical ascent, fulfilling his longtime dream to which he had aspired since 1996 when a snowstorm halted his efforts. In only five hours, Davo skied uninterruptedly (without taking skis off) from the top of the mountain to base camp at 5,340m. Davo has one more to complete skiing the seven summits... Davo also climbed and skied Annapurna, which is a bit harder than other other summits... :)

When we meet Dave Hahn earlier this summer, he said his team wanted to go without press and enjoy the climb. Good job! No doubt Dave will be back in spring 2007...

Sadly at least 4 Sherpas are confirmed dead on Pumori, Ang Zangbo Sherpa, 33, of Patle-1 of Okhaldhunga,  Phurba Thundu Sherpa, 31, of Gaurishanker-1, Dolakha, Pemba Wangdi Sherpa, 47 of Dolakha and Lhakpa Nurbu Sherpa of Sankhuwasabha. The expedition team comprising of 10 members and led by Cristian Denicolo, an Italian climber, was permitted to climb the 7161 m. high Mt. Pumori from normal route from September 29, according to a press release issued by the Ministry of Culture, Tourism and Civil Aviation. Sources tell EverestNews.com that number might grow....
