  Mt. Everest 2005: American George Dijmarescu six summits in the last 6 years, one without oxygen


copyright George Dijmarescu 2004

Update May 27th 2005: George and Lakpa were still at ABC yesterday morning. They are again part of the Asian Trekking Group for independent where all climbers are on their own. George has one Sherpa to help. Interesting, Lakpa Brother, who has climbed with George and Lakpa the last 2 or so years is the sirdar of the Russian team. Another one of George old Sherpa helpers is sirdar of the British commercial team...

Update 5/17/2005: George and Lakpa are doing fine. They are still at ABC eating well and thinking of you. They do not go down to base camp but instead stay at ABC for the whole expedition. George and Lakpa eat with the Sherpas. George believes one should eat like the Sherpas do, it works for them, and he has summited 6 times in the last 6th years, once without oxygen (something less than 100 have done on Everest). So now you know his secret!

How good are George and Lakpa? Sadly, we might never know. Lakpa, of course is a Sherpa. Off the mountain you would think she is just a housewife. On the mountain, she has what it takes and more! She can turn it on, and you know it!

George and Lakpa, has a young daughter, Sunny, so climbing besides their annual vacation to Everest is hard. George, has some plans for some interesting climbs, that hopefully we can tell you more about in the future. Chuck, a professional guide went to Everest last year on the Asian Trekking expedition that George joins every year. Chuck  summited with George on his first attempt on Everest, said this about George: "There is no way I could keep up with him, when he did not want me too."

George has a high level of respect for Everest. He has seen many die in the last 7 years. Their friends ask you to please keep George and Lakpa in your thoughts and prayers in the next few weeks. Everest is a dangerous place, even for the best...
