Everest Spring 2002 Introduction

Why do they climb Everest? Because it is there? EverestNews.com follows most of the expeditions on Everest in one way or another. Some ask why we cover some of the commercial expeditions, some ask why we cover what appears to be weak or somewhat unorganized expeditions. Some ask why we cover unknown climbers. Our Mission has been, and continues to be, to provide unbiased coverage for our readers of Everest coverage. We believe our readers want to determine who is strong and who is weak. Who is organized and who is unorganized.

We believe our readers want more not less. Therefore we try to cover most expeditions and climbers on the mountain. You can judge, if you wish, who is the strong and weak, or simply sit back and enjoy the adventure. This is a very high risk sport where people die. In some ways this is reality internet where some achieve their dreams and other die trying. On Everest it is not if, but who and how many will die.
