 Everest 2008:  Chinese Summit ? with a climber not on the team , weird and bizarre Everest 2008


The Chinese now report they have summited Everest with a Japanese climber and a Sherpa! One wonders if Guy has hacked into the web site (we are joking about the hacked part, then again read on...! )

The weird and bizarre Everest 2008 continues with a wild report that ""I've reached the summit! This is Cirenduoji! Base Camp! Base Camp!" At 12:44 p.m. on May 5, Zeng Shusheng, captain of the north face crew of the Chinese Mountaineering Team, was both relieved and excited to hear these words from his teammate on his walkie-talkie at Mt. Quomolangma's Base Camp, reported the Xinhua News Agency. Mr. Cirenduoji of China was the first of three mountaineers to reach the summit of Mt. Qomolangma,the world's highest peak,four hours and one minute after setting out from Attack Camp. Joining him shortly afterward were his expedition mates, Mr. Ang of Nepal and Mr. Yamada of Japan. The international team of three mountaineers had an early morning start, waking up at 4 a.m. to prepare for their planned departure from Attack Camp (8,680 m) on the north face of Mt. Qomolangma between 6:30 and 7 a.m., in order to reach the summit between 1:00 and 2:00 p.m.

Atop Mt. Qomolangma, surrounded by nothing but the azure sky, these warriors who successfully tackled the mammoth mountain, stood tall and proud, each raising his own national flag high above the Himalayas."

So where is the torch? was this an early team? Has Guy hacked the Chinese site (we are joking), then again.... This is weird. really weird....... A bad posting??

At the same time the Chinese announce the team. But the summiters are NOT on the team????? Yes, This is weird and bizarre...

One would assume a bad posting?? An early team? Where did the Japanese climber come from?

Ciren duoji is the name of the famous (well to some) Tibetain climber.... Same fellow?

So Everest 2008 just got more weird and bizarre than most coudl dream.... Stay Tuned....
