IMG Mount Everest Expedition 2003
South Side (Nepal)


 Current Nepal Time

Follow Along: Dispatch One: Expedition leader Dave Hahn called on the satellite phone from Phakding and said all was going well. Check here for the full update.

International Mountain Guides, based in Ashford, Washington will have two Everest Expeditions for 2003. This marks the eleven and twelfth expeditions that IMG has organized to the Everest since 1991.  Every year is different on Mt. Everest, and 2003 is no exception. There is no such thing as a "cookie cutter" expedition.  For 2003 we have two very different trips:

The South Side climb, led by longtime IMG guide and multiple Everest summiter Dave Hahn, is a private guided expedition. IMG is doing the logistics and Dave and his two assistant guides, Ben Marshall and Tap Richards, are working directly for the three climbers. On the North Side, IMG is doing the logistics for a three person non-guided climb, led by longtime IMG guide and Everest summiter Craig John.  Additionally, IMG is conducting two non-summit guided climbing programs, one going as high as 8000 meters, led by guide Chris Booher, and another to the North Col, led by guides Mark Tucker and Mike Hamill. Eric Simonson is working with North Side groups, and additionally will be leading a group of trekkers that are going to the 21,500 foot Advanced Base Camp.
