  Mt. Everest 2005: The South side Summit push, the real deal May 19th, 2005


Scott Wazny

Changes from yesterday: Four from Henry Todd's group have pushed to Camp 3. Team Honda  have moved up to join them. The Korean and British are at Camp 3, with apparently the Koreans descending from Camp 4 to Camp 3 the other day (Korean news is hard). The Korean and British group plan to attempt the summit on the 21st. Team Honda was announced the following plan: 20th May C3 to C4, 21st May C4 to C5, 21st May 21:00 PM start for summit from C5 and back for C4. The German LEIPZIG team is also moving on to join in the summit push. Others at this point, we are awaiting news for today. See below for where they were yesterday.

The Everest Summit push is on from the South. The window is small and somewhat dangerous. Several independent climbers, including one American are in the push! The American, up there somewhere is Scott Wazny with his 2 sherpa Phur Gayljen Sherpa and Ang Pemba Sherpa. Any information on these climbers would be much appreciated as they don't have a sat phone..

Others up there include the Koreans and Czechs reportedly as high as camp 4. Brits and Russians are headed up, along with the Four Friends To Climb Everest For A Cure (Apa Sherpa Again!!), Team Honda, Asian Trekking independent climbers (Dirk Stephan and Keith Woodhouse plus more independents) and of course the K2, Everest, Lhotse, etc. etc. summiter Waldemar Niclevicz. Australian Rex Pemberton is said to be moving up too, but he expected to come back down. SummitClimb Everest - Lhotse International Expedition 2005 leader Dan Mazur is sitting in the cat bird's seat at camp 2, watching the action. Will Cross is moving up...
