  Everest 2006 Coverage by EverestNews.com: Over 3000 Summits of Everest


©EverestNews.com

Among 17 permitted teams for spring 2006, 194 mountaineers of following countries HAVE BEEN reported to the officials in Nepal as summits to date. Country wise total numbers of successful climbers are as follows below in the table. Like normal some summits get reported late. We believe the number is now over 200 from the south and with the huge number on the North Side over 3000 summits of Everest has been achieved with over 200 deaths (depending on how one counts deaths the number varies).

Much Earlier: The first team is expected to arrive in March with 100's of climbers on both sides of the mountain as record number of summits expected again in 2006... With over 2500 summits of Everest, now what? We expect in 2006 the 3000 summit will be achieved. 2006 will bring attempts to Ski the North side of Everest from the Summit (no one has skied from the Summit on the North side) and possibly a Fantasy Ridge attempt. The American Fantasy Ridge expedition appears to be short on funding and therefore they have tough decisions ahead...

Most other climbers appear to be joining the "low Budget" expeditions, with some on mid range unguided commercial expeditions and a few on the high budget expeditions as usual.

The British will attempt the West ridge, which of course has been summited by Sharon Wood and others, but is still a difficult route.

Press reports indicate Graham Hoyland plans to return for the Mallory and Irvine hunt, but EverestNews.com has not confirmed those press reports. Others appear interested in the Mallory and Irvine search, but that is another story for another day....

Everest 2006 will surely bring high drama, and it is not of matter of if someone will die, but who and how many; along with the record numbers of summits nearly every year....
