Adventure Consultants Everest Expedition 2002

Thursday 16 May: 0700 Nepal time, 1300 NZ time: Dave has just been in contact via radio with Guy at Everest BC, they are just below the South Summit (8750m). The climb has been going well, perhaps a little slowly as they have been doing a lot of rope fixing, but the weather has been good. Alan Arnette turned around not long after starting and is now back at south col, Phurba Sherpa came up from south col to meet him. Alan got down very quickly so Phurba had hardly got going before they met up. Tom Burch and Rob Plotke have also turned around during the early morning hours and they arrived back at south col about 0330 accompanied by Phu Tashi. Haraldur, Ellen, Bill and Dave are carrying on, all feeling strong, with Sherpas Ang Dorjee, Lhakpa Dorje and Pasang.  Report by Suze Kelly.
