  Mallory and Irvine The Final Chapter Everest 2005: Are you sure there is a Window?


©EverestNews.com

Are you sure there is a Window? Only our Father in heaven, knows for sure. Those of us who are believers, know this to be true. Man is made to error. However, man can accomplishment much, but nothing without His help. Yan, the forecaster we have been working with for the last two years for the Mallory and Irvine expedition has been  excellent beyond our expectations. But Yan is a human being, and he and his staff can make a mistake or our Father in heaven can decide to change the plan. Yan does not control God. Does God care about you? Yes. Does he care if you or we summit Everest? He cares that you show love, he wants you to love your brother as yourself. He wants you for forgive others for their sins, for if you do not forgive others you cannot be forgiven. He wants you to repent of your sins. God loves you and wants to bless your life.

With that said, Yan provides forecasts for Jean-Christophe Lafaille and many other climbers including our Mallory and Irvine climbers. We trust his forecasts. We do not look at any other forecast for our plans. He has called this year's weather better than we could have ever could have dreamed was possible. (This custom forecast also should be noted is for the North side of Everest). Yan says, "window for the 1st and day after.... monsoon around the 7". Now this is several days in advance, therefore a smart climber would keep watching, as this window might move some, or could even go away. A conservative climber, some would say a smart climber, might wait until the 2nd day of summits and follow the pack. However, someone again must go first. Some of us that go up will not come back down. People will speculate and tell tales about why we died. Only God will know for sure.... This is a dangerous sport where people die every year on Everest.

Soon our men shall head up. We don't believe He cares if the mystery is solved, in case you were wondering....

With our kindest regards and thanks, The Staff at EverestNews.com

We return to Mount Everest in search of an answer.
