The Iran Mountain Federation has announced that they are planning to have the National Women’s Mountaineering Team attempt to summit Mount Everest in 2005. If successful they will be the first Iranian women to climb to the highest point on earth, they are the first group to represent Muslim women on Everest. An expedition had been planned in 2003 for Iranian women; however it was cancelled a few days before leaving Tehran.

They have begun the selection of women climbers during camp in Kelardasht, where they will be climbing in the Alborz Range. They have experienced heavy snowfall and it is not known to what altitude they will be able to train. There are 26 members of the National Team of Iranian Men’s Mountaineers assisting with the testing and training and this group of men will accompany the female expedition to Everest.

This will be the first attempt for the National Team of women to climb an 8000m peak. In the last few years this group has climbed 6000m and 7000m peaks throughout the Himalaya. Among the Iranian men mountaineers joining this expedition are; Maghbel HonarPajouh, who at 21 became the youngest person to summit Lhotse in 2002 and Reza Bahadorani, who would have accompanied the 2003 Everest expedition.
