IMG Mount Everest Expedition 2003
North Side (Tibet) Dispatch One


Dispatch One: The IMG North Side team safely made it to Kathmandu.  Joining Leader Craig John and Ted Wheeler, Jay White, and Pete Certain are "8000 meter" climbers Caisey Harlington, Bruce Bramhill, and Nacho Piedra, and IMG guide Chris Booher.  The 8000m climbers travel to the mountain with the climbers, with their goal being to reach 8000 meters on the North Ridge (not the summit).  Yesterday all the climbers joined the Sherpa team in a trip to the Boudhanath Monastery in Kathmandu, for a puja with the Lama.  This morning they all fly to Lhasa, where they will take a couple days to acclimatize and be tourists.  Then it is off to Base Camp, via jeeps, crossing the Tibet Plateau.  Eric

The expedition is organized by Eric Simonson IMG Expeditions
