More from the Mallory and Irvine Team 2005
How are people summiting? People are getting up
real early and heading up with very early summit times and then getting down
before the strongest winds come in every day. An extremely dangerous game.
Earlier Update: Team 2 and team 3 have moved up
the mountain. The goal is to film and photograph certain areas of the
mountain. In 2006, there is plan to send our own team back again. Plans are
already underway. We expect to pay 90% of the costs out of our pockets, as we
have so far. However, Sponsors are welcome and needed.
How are the conditions up high? The wind is variable.
Walking wounded climbers are almost the normal. We will be fine. Maybe even
get a little searching in... See if we can find a needle...
We return to Mount Everest in search of an answer.
weather, high altitude double boot for extreme conditions The Olympus
Mons is the perfect choice for 8000-meter peaks. This super lightweight
double boot has a PE thermal insulating inner boot that is coupled with
a thermo-reflective outer boot with an integrated gaiter. We used a
super insulating lightweight PE outsole to keep the weight down and the
TPU midsole is excellent for crampon compatibility and stability on
steep terrain. WEIGHT: 39.86 oz • 1130 g LAST: Olympus Mons
