  Everest 2006 Team No Limits: Team No Limits, Doug Tumminello, resting at Camp II - Coffey has left base camp


Team No Limits, Base Camp Manager, Roger Coffey, has headed for Katmandu. According to Roger, Base Camp is becoming desolate and he made the decision to leave before his team member, Doug.  Doug will remain under the guidance of Apa Sherpa until he is safely back down to Base Camp. Our last report indicated that Doug is resting up at Camp II and will make his final descent thru the Icefall when Apa Sherpa deems it safe. The Icefall is beginning to melt and can present a paramount challenge to climbers upon their descent. 

We are happy to know that Doug is resting up for this final and treacherous stretch. Apa Sherpa will see to it that Doug undertakes crossing the Icefall at a safe time. We all remain so proud of Doug and thankful for guys like Apa. Apa is dedicated to making sure that his last man is off the mountain safely. 

Weather permitting, Doug should begin his climb thru the Icefall early this morning. We will send word when we have the confirmation that he is safely down!  

"If you aren't busy living then you are busy dying"

Team No Limits affiliated climber, Juli Smith, summited at approximately 7:20 AM with Nawang Passang Sherpa. Both Juli and Nawang Passang are headed back down. According to the latest report, all three climbers and four Sherpas are headed to Camp IV. We will send conformation of their safe arrival to Camp IV as soon as we are notified.
