Arnold reports in: Hello EverestNews.com. This is Arnold again, the leader of
the SummitClimb Everest Tibet Expedition. Right now we're packing ABC and
we're ready to get back to Katmandu. We had a very successful expedition. From
the 15 members who tried for the summit, 13 made it. Here's a short summary of
all the people who summated because I think after all the dispatches a lot of
people got confused. So here we go-
On the 15th of May, Jean Vandewege from Belgium, Stein Tant from Belgium,
Steven Maginelle from Belgium, and Aldas Baltutis from Lithuania summited.
They were assisted by Janbgu Sherpa and Tibetan climber Bian Ba.
On the 16th of May summited Phil Crampton from the UK, Kevin Adams from the
UK, Martin Barnett from the UK, Michael Hsu from the USA and they were
assisted by Tibetan Climbers Yun Dan and Awang.
On the 21st of May, Tunc from Turkey summited Everest for the second time,
Mustafa Kalayci from Turkey, Matthew Vulk from the USA; they were assisted by
Tibetan climbers Chering and Chimi.
On the 23rd of May, Arnold Coster from the Netherlands summited for the
second time and is the expedition leader. Ron Hoglin from Canada, second time
on the summit, Maya Sherpa from Nepal, second time on the summit, and Jangbu
Sherpa from Nepal, five times on the summit and he also summited for us
earlier this season on the 15th of May with the Belgians and the Lithuanian
So I hope now it's a little bit more clear who summited. I'm really happy
that today we go down to Base Camp and load up our trucks to Katmandu and
we'll have a big party in Katmandu. So stay tuned for more parting news from
SummitClimb, bye bye.
