 SummitClimb Everest - Lhotse International Expedition 2005


Updates

American Dan Mazur will lead a veteran group of climbers to Everest in Spring 2005. His May 2004 expedition (Tibet side) placed 9 members and 16 Sherpas on the summit.

From left to right: Everest, Nuptse, and Lhotse. A picture postcard view.

Well, things are just about to get started.  It's four something in the morning and we are at our hotel loading trucks and buses for the trip to the airport.  I'm glad to be in the office writing this dispatch rather than dealing with the baggage chaos outside.  I don't know how many tons of gear our expedition has, but we'll hire over 100 yaks to carry all of it to Base Camp.  Our group is quite a sight.  We have almost 50 people including climbing members, trekkers, Sherpas, and staff.  We are very anxious to get started with our trek/climb.  Last night we had our last super before heading into the Khumbu, and we filled-up on steaks and beer. This morning we will fly to Lulka, and trek a few hours to the village of Phakding.  We expect to arrive in Everest Basecamp on April 13th.  More soon....Mark Merwin
