Everest Summit Success

News dispatches are usually sent by e-mail from ABC or BC, but hot from the North Col, by telephone, we can tell you that...

Summit attempts were delayed by 24 hours as the optimum weather window arrived later than first forecast.

This morning, 4 members and 8 sherpas from team one have reached the summit and returned to the North Col and then ABC.

The members are Bill, Terry, Marcel & Kurt.

Team 2 will head for the summit, with a perfect weather forecast, in the early hours of 15 May 2006
