Who made it all the way to the top, the true Summit of Mt
Everest? The good news is that on the South side of Everest, so far, we have
no summit disputes this year.
On the North side, the disputes are growing.
We encourage all who summited Everest after the Chinese on the North to
publish a picture with the new "tripod installed by the Chinese and the
climber (either in the air or on the ground). We are getting several press inquires. As we discussed in the "Official
Mt Everest Summits" article of last week, all of this takes time. We are
asking several climbers for pictures who have reported summits. We have
many more climbers to ask. Climbers can help one another by providing
pictures. This process will take several months to complete,
we need to be thorough. How can it be done quicker? Post or send us a picture
with the Chinese Tripod and the climber at the summit... If you don't have
one, tell the whole truth and explain why... Tell us who was with you on the
summit and let's try to get picture from those who were with you...
These summit disputes take a huge amount of our staff's time
every year... We are also looking for pictures from May 21st, 2005 from
the north side of Everest before the first few climbers arrived at the
