NEWSLETTERS - Everest Spring 1998

Newsletter 28 April 1998

There has been considerable bad weather in the lower mountains of Nepal, and more than 1m of snow fell on the road between Nylam and the boarder town of Zangmu. It has taken a week to have the road cleared, so our team is still in Kathmandu waiting. However we will depart early tomorrow the 9th April, with the hope of reaching Nylam in one day. I have heard that only one of the 18 teams that are on the North side of Everest, has in fact reached BC, so there are many teams between Kathmandu and BC at the moment.
