  Mt. Everest 2005: The North side Summit push, the real deal: High drama coming soon


©EverestNews.com

The Everest Summit push is on from the North. The window is small and somewhat dangerous. 5 independent climbers, including one American are in the push plus the SummitClmb North side team, and some various climbers below. SummitClimb appears to be the key, in that they have rope and Sherpas. Rope SummitClimb bought to the mountain. Without the rope, the others will have to climb the mountain using the old ropes which is possible, but dangerous. At least 4 of the independent climbers are a day ahead of SummitClimb. Of course, we don't know if the independent climbers know that the ropes are only fixed to the top of the ridge, they might be operating under the assumption or false reports that the rope was put in all the way to the Second step as they paid for....

Other groups below and notes:

Indian Climbers: Two reported at Camp 2, unknown if sherpas are with them
