Adventure Consultants Everest Expedition 2002

1050 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! 

We will update the progress of the entire team on their descent to South Col, and lower camps.
