Arnold is back!
Hello EverestNews.com. This is Arnold, the leader of the SummitClimb
Everest-Tibet Expedition. Today five new North Col members arrived to join our
expedition and get a basic experience in climbing in the mountains. Climbing
the North Col they will join our real Everest team and experience what is
Climbing to the North Col at 7,020 meters is not so hard. And they will
experience everything that comes about in a high altitude expedition. They
have to trek to ABC first and adapt slowly to the altitude. After that they
can leave for the challenging ground to the North Col. During the climb they
will see the effects of the lights deep in the valley and once on the North
Col they will get a fabulous view of the real heighth. Climbing the North Col
is the perfect place to see if you can handle real altitude. These are our new
North Col members- Michael from Australia, David from Australia, Bruce from
the US, Nick from Australia, and Eric from the UK. We wish them the best of
luck!! .bye bye
