EverestNews.com Coverage of Martine Larroque's Everest 2002 Expedition

climbing for
May 16th: Martine called earlier from Camp 3, she is very tired and in great pain, this pain is caused by the fact that as Martine and her Sherpa left Camp 4 during the night, Martine developed a serious cough, by the time they reached 8550 Meters (300 Meters from summit) her Sherpa forced her to turn back due to the amount of blood she was spitting. The Sherpa knew that Martine could make it to summit but he was too worried that she would not make it back down if not taking this decision. She is now resting in Camp 3. Martine made it to 8550 Meters!!!
