Update June 3, 2005: We are going back home!

Vitor Negrete and Rodrigo Raineri, from the Try On Expedition II / Everest 2005, are in Advanced Base Camp, at 6,400 meters, beginning their return to Brazil.

"It was more difficult to descend than to reach the summit.  Being in ABC, despite being a high place means safety for us, especially because what had happened to us".  These were the first words of Vitor Negrete, when he arrived to Advanced Base Camp, at 6,400 meters this morning (Brasilia time) after having reached the summit of Mount Everest, 8,850 meters, by the North Face (Tibet).

Vitor and Rodrigo Raineri - who got to 50 meters from the summit and had to take the hard decision to return - suffered a lot during the descent.  Rodrigo said that "we turned around and, at 8,100 meters our Sherpa was supposed to leave a tent with a stove, sleeping bag and food to spend the night.  We got there around six in the afternoon and there was nothing, no tent, no sleeping bag, no stove, nothing!"

He continued explaining that "we were above 8,000 meters, on Everest, getting dark and without anything, it was crazy!  We decided to continue until we found shelter to spend the night".

To make things worst, Vitor Negrete lost his headlamp - the lantern that is used on the head to have free hands - during the climb. "The day of the summit attack had already been hard and when we thought we would go to rest, we had to descend even more.  In the dark, only with Rodrigo's headlamp, it was really complicated.  Until we found an empty tent of our American friends and we slept there".

Rodigo said that "during the descent we fell a lot of times because of the loose stones.  Our clothes were ripped and when we got to the tent of the Americans, I only had thermal isolation.  It was already in the early morning, around 1 in the morning.  We slept to wait for the daybreak and during our sleep we had a little frostbite in the limbs because we were dehydrated.  Water had run out at 3 in the afternoon".

On the next day (03/06), around 11 hours (Tibet time), a little above 7,000 meters we found a tent of the Indian expedition where we could, finally, melt ice to hydrate.

Exhausted, they reached ABC by the end of the afternoon (Tibet time) where they were received with macaroni, offered by the Russian expedition.  They were examined right there by a doctor that didn't find any grave problem on the Brazilians.

Happy with the result of the Try On Expedition II / Everest 2005, Rodrigo and Vitor say that they learned a lot with Sagarmatha, Goddess of the Sky, as the Tibetans call the highest mountain of the world.  "This experience is very valuable, we had a lot of stories to tell and to remember, but now we only want to go back to Brazil".

The members of the Try On Expedition II / Everest 2005 - Vitor Negrete, Rodrigo Raineri, Ghilherme "Totó" Setani and TV Globo's journalist, Clayton Conservani - should be back in Sao Paulo next week. 

The Try On Expedition II / 2005 had the sponsorship of Try On and the support of Landscape / Cía. Athletica / Green Life / Grade VI / SoloDesing.

06/02/2005 - Vitor Negrete reached the top of the World!

At noon, Tibet time (around 3 in the morning, Brasilia time), Vitor Negrete, from Try On Expedition II / Everest 2005, could reach the summit of the highest mountain of the world at 8,8500 meters.

Rodrigo Raineri reached 8,800 meters and had to take the decision, which surely was the hardest of his life, to turn around because it was getting late and he would face risks while returning to Camp 3.

The two members of the Try On Expedition II / Everest 2005 reached Camp 3 and are okay.

Vitor Negrete met another couple sponsored by Try ON, who reached the summit by the South Face, Waldemar Niclevicz and Irivan Burda, on the summit.  Brazil didn't reach the summit of Mount Everest since 10 years ago and this year, despite an atypical and difficult season, three Brazilian climbers did. 

Translated from Portuguese by Jorge Rivera

Update: They left C3 just after 22h00 on 31st, Nepal time.

But because they felt it was too windy and cold, they turned back just before the first step. They will wait today at C3, if the wind calms down a bit they hope to try again next night.

Update 5/26/2005: Hans Goger just came back from Tingri and he is planning to go up with another Austrian.

Hen Hill has went home...

The climbers from BRAZIL will head back up soon...

Three climbers from Brazil, one American, and one Austria make up the International Team. This is really just a group of climbers on a permit, with the exception that, we assume the climbers from Brasil are climbing together. Man Bahadur Tamang, the experienced excellent climber, supports this expedition along with Lila Bahadur Tamang.
