 Shishapangma (26,335ft / 8027m) 2007: Update


Hello Everestnews readers, I have arrived in Kathmandu on time. Most importantly my luggage arrived in one piece  (in three pieces actually).

Today I am meeting with the guys from Asian Trekking Ltd to go through the paperwork (visas, permits...) and also discuss the last details related to the logistics.

I just got a message...a mudslide is blocking the road from Zangmu to Nyalam (Tibet, China). So most likely I will leave for the Chinese boarder on Sep 12th instead of 11th. Nothing to worry about. It is not an unusual thing for this time of  the year.

I spent some time today wandering the streets of Kathmandu. Nothing has changed much since my last visit in 2005, except... there is a new (possibly the first) Italian restaurant next to my  hotel !!!

Good to be back in Kathmandu... Later, Ray Yeritsian. p.s. next message, in a couple of days, hopefully from Tibet

Earlier: Hello everestnews readers, I am flying to Kathmandu in a couple of days and later driving to Tibet, China.

First stop  -  Shishapangma  (26,335ft / 8027m). I will be on the North West side of the mountain.  About the planned route of ascent… I have a couple of possible  “variations”  in my mind, but will decide when I get there. 

In addition, I have a climbing permit for a second 8000er in the area… but that’s if all goes well on Shishapangma. More details on the second part of my expedition, later. Asian Trekking (P) Ltd will make arrangements for logistical support only. 

That’s about it for now. Later, Ray Yeritsian.

Ever wonder why few ever climb from the Central Summit to the Main Summit of Shishapangma,

 
A cold 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 CONSTRUCTION: Inner: Slip lasted Outer: Board Lasted OUTER BOOT: Cordura® upper lined with dual-density PE micro-cellular thermal insulating closed cell foam and thermo-reflective aluminium facing/ Insulated removable footbed/ Vibram® rubber rand See more here.
