Consultants Everest Expedition 2002
hours Nepal time: Dave, Bill, Haraldur, Lhakpa
Dorje and Passang have reached the summit of Mount
Everest, and have joined Ellen and Ang Dorjee.
Dave said that the ascent has gone well and the
weather conditions are still good. For
Haraldur, this summit success makes him the 3rd
person in the world to achieve the Grand Slam! He
has now climbed all of the Seven Summits and has
journeyed on foot to both the North and South Poles.
A notable accomplishment and admirable effort.
Dave is the 15th New Zealander to summit Everest (
23 ascents by New Zealanders overall ), and this is
Bill and Passang's second Everest summit. Our
congratulations go out to all!
will update the progress of the entire team on their
descent to South Col, and lower camps.
