Maselko on the summit (1:35pm) Note Babu’s tent on the bottom right - down
by his feet to the right.
- seridge.jpg - Looking down
the southeast ridge from the summit.
Note Babu’s shovel at the front left hand corner of the picture.
- summit.jpg - picture of
the summit itself - note that the tripod is gone. Note the clear picture of
Babu’s tent and shovel.
- tadekrys.jpg - Tadek and
Ryszard getting ready to descend from the summit (2:40pm). They are standing
at the rock outcropping at the base of the summit
http://22.214.171.124/tadekrys.jpg Note the snow at their feet.
- For comparison apprsum.jpg
- of Ryszard approaching the summit - he arrived on the top 30 minutes after
Tadek and myself (note that you can see our footprints in front of him).
- Jacek’s photos show items
that are new to the Summit of Everest in 1999. For example, we know that
Babu’s tent and shovel were left on the summit this year. These items are
clearly shown in these pictures and are key evidence in pictures allegedly
indicating a Summit this year. (Proof if shown with the climber (s))
