  Everest 2007:  Is another climber missing on Everest North side?


©EverestNews.com

It has been another long long hard year reporting on Everest. False death reports all over as normal. Our news being copied and mangled. Of course those with clear agendas signing their songs and those who "claim not to have an agenda" signing their songs ... Same old Everest, just another year!

The question is: Is another Italian climber, Pierangelo Maurizio,  missing?

Some seem sure no other climber is missing. Others off the mountain believe Pierangelo Maurizio is missing and probably lost now....

The confusion seems to get worse as most know an Italian climber, "Marco" was found and was saved from camp 3 on the North side. readers are telling us that Marco is not Pierangelo Maurizio and that Pierangelo Maurizio is still missing. Climbers we speak to on the mountain don't seem to know another Italian climber is missing... Some seem to think Pierangelo Maurizio is Marco, other not... At this point, we believe Pierangelo Maurizio is not Marco and that most on the mountain does not know this. We hope we are wrong....

So with the risk is spreading a false rumor that Pierangelo Maurizio is missing as our news is repeated over and over, here it goes Pierangelo Maurizio is missing on Everest... Please let us know if you know where he is, people are concerned... 

We should add we know of NO other dead or missing climbers besides what we have reported to date and currently believe reports to the otherwise are false...

Below are the Italian summit report and the 7 summits club report as background.

Here is a very short report of the summit of Nives Meroi, Romano Benet, Nadia Tiraboschi and David Borlini.

Great performance of Nives Meroi e Romano Benet on Everest. They summited this morning with a not very fine weather and following their usual style: no oxygen, no Sherpas. The information was delivered by Nadia Tiraboschi, who called directly from Everest summit that she reached together with David Borlini (both using oxygen). Pierangelo Maurizio and Marco Epis, of the same team of Nadia, were reported still climbing. While we wait for more news and details, we wish all the best to all the Italian mountaineers and many, many congratulations..
