/ First summit push on Everest
I thought everest had already been climbed?
...of this season
Not wishing to be pedantic, but Nepal is 5:45 ahead of GMT.
Met Kenton a few times last month in the Khumbu.
Good luck to Kenton and Clive on their summit bid tonight!
Just read some of the reports, I'm amazed to see there's 70-80 people on the south col at the moment waiting for a summit push. This sounds bizarre, is there usually that many up there awaiting a weather window like this?
Arrogant guides on the Bosses ridge is one thing, but a queue up there could turn out bad. Hopefully everyone will get down OK tomorrow.
I think with so many climbers on the North Side as well, they are going to put a second ladder on the 2nd Step.
Hopefully by 2006 they will have an escalator installed, especially if this bl*ody leg of mine never heals.
But will she make it??? (and will she then marry me).
There were more going for it in one night last year when a decent weather window didn't come until very late on. At least this early one should spread things out a bit.
Nice, but you would get lost on the way to the wedding
Unfortunately that's all I've been doing for 12 months!.
Tell Mr G that I'm sure I can still outpace him even if I have to hop!
> But will she make it??? (and will she then marry me).
I want to marry her too.
not if i get their first
I'm surprised her site has only had 17,000 hits.
cant believe though in her pictures shes just got climbing pictures type things,
I expected saucy catalogue shots!
Im off to everest!
Show some respect folks, you're talking about the future Mrs Jungle.
Correct. Stripey, arguably the world's foremost mountaineering mouse, is on his way. And he's opted not to use oxygen. Very impressive.
On the summit of Ama Dablam:
Well done chief - you the man!
Well done Kenton as well.
Ed Viestur made it - Apa Sherpa - 14 summits!
P.S. Annabelle made it too.
