AC's Dispatches

Adventure Consultants Everest Expedition 2002

Saturday 4 May: The AC crew were at C2 on Thursday and headed up to C3 yesterday. They should arrive back at BC on Sunday. After much contemplation John Taske has decided to leave the expedition and is on his way down the valleys to fly back to Kathmandu from Lukla and onwards to his home. Ang Dorjee and the AC Sherpas made it through to the South Col (Camp 4, 7950m) with their rope fixing on Thursday, the first Sherpas of all the expeditions to do so. Guy Cotter commented from BC "This is a decisive moment for all the teams as fixed rope to the Col means everybody can start moving supplies up and get ready for the summit bid. If the weather stays fine there should be teams making their attempts within the week." 

The AC base camp will be full over the next few days when the crew get back down to BC  with many visitors in residence including the arrival of Dr. Celeste Geertsema, who is to trade places with her sister Liesel as the Adventure Consultants expedition doctor, and Professor Phil Lieberman from Brown University with his wife Marsha.
