EverestNews.com has received new messages and pictures form the EXPEDICIΣN CASTELLANO LEONESA AL EVEREST 1999 Expediciσn Samuel Rubio  http://server3.servicios.retecal.es/everest99/ .

As we understand it, they are in Kathmandu awaiting an airplane to take them to Lukla. They appear to say that "our first group already has arrived at the CII and have had to begin to work."

They also state that they meet with Miss Elizabeth Hawley, who "obtained with meticulousness the data concerning this expedition. The one is peculiar stating that at the moment the two only expeditions anticipated for this postmonsoon to the Everest are ours by the Nepal slope and a Basque by the slope of Tibet."

Appearing to confirm what EverestNews.com earlier reported, that there are only expeditions presently going to Everest. One from the North and one from the South.

We hope to have those full messages and pictures for you on Tuesday.

  • Autumn Cho Oyu/Shishapangma Double expedition:Cho Oyu/Shishapangma Double expedition: Cho Oyu/Shishapangma Double expedition:

Who is Chris Warner ? Check him out.

  • First Dispatch: Kathmandu, Nepal Chris Warner

The plane banked towards Kathmandu, cutting low across the jagged ridge lines and into the valley bottom. The monsoon had pushed its heavy, grey clouds against the peaks, which tore them into strips, like strings of cheese hanging from a grater. Descending through the final clouds, the city suddenly revealed itself. To the East, temples stood above the city. Flooded rice paddies stretched to the West. Directly below us the red brick buildings were piled one against the other.

We landed during a break in the rain. The monsoon is growing tired, but is expected to stay hovered over Kathmandu for at least another week. This is keeping the tourists away, leaving the streets in their most raw and puddled state. The narrow alley ways and twisted streets are not as frenzied as when the international trekkers are here. It is kind of nice to share the city with only a handful of expeditions, most of which are headed for Cho Oyu.

PB Thapa, my old friend, was at the airport to greet me with a garland of flowers. Keeping with tradition, he placed the flowers around my neck and bowed as he greeted me with a "Namaste."

I first met PB in 1989 and have been working with him ever since. He is a very spiritual person whose warmth and affection have earned him friends all around the world. In fact he just returned from a two month trip in the United States. PB's company organizes expeditions and treks in the Himalayas, including trips to the south side of Mt. Everest. He will be organizing our October trip to Ama Dablam.

Climbing in Tibet, however, requires us to use the expert services of Asian Trekking, the only authorized permitted for the North side of Everest, Cho Oyu and Shishapangma. Within hours of arriving we had met our cook, who will be our only Sherpa support. Ram, (pronounced ROM), our cook, has climbed Cho Oyu before and has been on dozens of expeditions. He has even climbed to the South Col of Everest. I hope he cooks as well as he climbs.

Brad, Ram and I are now engrossed in the details of expedition organizing. In the next day and a half, we need to finish packing our personal and group gear, purchase 50 days worth of food and fuel, and obtain visas from the Chinese government. The gear will be loaded into large, blue, plastic barrels and secured with a lock. These waterproof drums will keep our gear from being destroyed by both the journey across Tibet in trucks and by the team of 7 yaks which will carry everything from base camp to advanced base camp. Believe it or not, Tibetan yaks have a reputation for being unruly and aggressive, unlike their moderately docile Nepalese relatives.

Some quick highlights of the prep phase have been the making of flags for our partners: Elkridge Elementary School, The Park School and Teamworks Training and Development. We are having these flags embroidered with their logos and plan to fly them from the summit. Kamsu, my favorite Buddhist monk, has blessed prayer flags for us to hang in advanced base camp. And we've had dinner with some of the other expedition leaders who are heading to Cho Oyu this year. It was a great opportunity to build relationships which will prove to be crucial later on the mountain.

We are planning to leave Kathmandu on the morning of the 28th. This early season departure will put us from 4 to 12 days ahead of the other Cho Oyu teams. While it will be nice to be in front, it sure would be helpful to have their strong legs and backs clearing the road that crosses into Tibet. We are expecting the four day journey by trucks and jeeps to be a muddy, messy ride.

It is a journey we can't wait to begin.

I will be sending another dispatch tomorrow: prepping the world for the trip to BC, during which I will be unable to send any emails. Perhaps I'll be able to attach a photo at that time.

GROUNDBREAKING NEW PROGRAM ALLOWS SCHOOL STUDENTS TO BECOME "VIRTUAL PARTICIPANTS" IN INTERNATIONAL MOUNTAIN CLIMBING EXPEDITIONS  -- Earth Treks' Climbing Center Creates Shared Summits Program As Part Of Major Educational Initiative --

 -- Earth Treks' President Chris Warner To Climb Mt. Everest In May 2000

-- Earth Treks, the East Coast's premier climbing organization, today announced the formation of Shared Summits, a philanthropic program allowing school students to become "virtual" participants in mountain climbing expeditions to the world's highest peaks.  Utilizing the Internet along with state-of-the-art digital technology, Shared Summits will allow 1st through 12th grade students to experience the world of mountaineering and will expose them to the environments which surround the most majestic sites on the planet. Throughout the 1999-2000 school year, Earth Treks' president, Chris Warner, will communicate with Shared Summits' students during a formidable series of climbs in Tibet, Nepal, and Ecuador -- culminating with a May 2000 summit attempt on Mount Everest.

Shared Summits was developed by Earth Treks as part of an ongoing commitment to provide school age children with meaningful and   unique educational opportunities.  Scheduled to begin in September, this one-of-a-kind program will integrate the experiences of Earth Treks' mountaineering expeditions with the curricula of participating schools. By logging on to Earth Treks' web-site each week, classes will learn about the culture, geography, and lore of the various regions in which the expeditions are climbing and will be able to have specific questions answered by Chris Warner and his team via e-mail.  Also, by actively following the expeditions' progress, students will gain a true appreciation for the value of teamwork, trust, perseverance, and goal achievement -- qualities that are developed through mountain climbing.  "International mountain climbing is an endeavor that has always been reserved for adults who possess a solid foundation in the arts of rock and ice climbing as well as mountaineering," commented Chris Warner.  "I am so thrilled that by harnessing the power of the Internet and digital technology, Earth Treks will be able to communicate with children from the most inspiring sites on the planet and in doing so, provide them with a truly unique and memorable learning experience.  In addition to the academic benefits of Shared Summits, students will feel as if they were actually participating in the climbs -- Earth Treks' successes will be their own successes."

The Shared Summits climbing itinerary consists of five highly diverse treks, each one introducing students to a different culture as well as a new set of climbing challenges.  During the Fall semester, Warner and  a partner will attempt Cho Oyu and Shishapangma in Tibet (two of only fourteen 8,000+ meter peaks in the world).  Also in the Fall, Warner will participate in an expedition to Ama Dablam in Nepal, largely regarded as one of the most beautiful mountains in the world.  In the winter, Warner will lead an expedition to Ecuador, South America, and in May 2000, he will make his first summit attempt to the "roof of the world," Mount Everest. Howard County-based Elkridge Elementary School will be the first school to partner with Earth Treks, linking the Shared Summits program with the third-grade class' "Investigating the World" unit.  While Warner and his team climb in Nepal, for example, the students will simultaneously learn how Nepal's culture is related to its geography and economic demands. Each week the students will go to Earth Treks' Shared Summits web site where they will have an opportunity to ask Warner questions about Nepal and will be able to obtain written feedback as well as digital imagery from the locale.  In November, when Warner returns for one month, he will speak to the students at Elkridge, answering questions about the first series of climbs and preparing them for those to follow. Currently in discussions with a host of public and private schools along the Baltimore-Washington corridor, Earth Treks aims to partner with at least three educational institutions by the middle of the Fall semester.

"The Elkridge Elementary School emblem will be sewn onto the flag that I plant on the summit of Mt. Everest," affirmed Warner.  "Elkridge students, and for that matter the students of all Shared Summits schools, will be represented at the top of the world."  During this, the  inaugural year of Shared Summits, Earth Treks will partner primarily with schools based in the Baltimore-Washington region.  However, through the Internet, Earth Treks will not be limited by geographic concerns as the program grows.  Warner ads, "I am only worried about how we will sew so many school emblems onto one flag."

Formed in 1992 by world-class mountaineering expert Chris Warner, Earth Treks began as the mid-Atlantic region's first professional mountaineering guide service.  Since that time, Earth Treks has grown to be one of the Nation's foremost professional guide services, leading clients on international mountaineering expeditions to the world's most incredible climbing areas (e.g. North and South America, Europe, Nepal, India).  The only guide service in the mid-Atlantic region to earn an accreditation from the American Mountain Guides Association, Earth Treks will lead over ten mountaineering expeditions on three continents during the 1999-2000 climbing season.

Built on a foundation of 17 years guiding experience, Columbia, MD-based Earth Treks' Climbing Center (ETCC) teaches over 9,000 people to climb each year.  ETCC's staff of fully certified, top-ranked climbers specializes in both rock and ice climbing instruction and leads a continuous series of instructional programs both at their indoor climbing facility and at the most beautiful and challenging outdoor rock climbing sites throughout the region. Since first opening its doors in January 1997, ETCC has rapidly become the East Coast's premier indoor rock gym, offering 44-foot high walls and 14,500 sq. ft. of varied climbing terrain to beginner and expert climbers in the Baltimore/Washington area.  People can visit Earth Treks' web site at www.earthtreksclimbing.com.

EverestNews.com will receive e-mail messages and pictures from Chris and Brad from these expeditions.

  • Lhotse Spring 1999:

Czech expedition Lhotse Spring 99: Please find following short summary of our expedition.  Zdenek Hruby

Leader: Josef Simunek (male 34, summits: Makalu, Shisha Pangma), Summit Lhotse 5/12/99

Climbing members:

Zdenek Hruby (male 43, summits: Cho Oyu, Hidden Peak, Gasherbrum II, Everest) Summit Lhotse 5/13/99.

Josef Moravek (male 37), Summit Lhotse 5/13/99

Ludek Ondrej (male 43), reached 7700m

Sona Vomackova (female 27, summit: Makalu), Summit Lhotse   5/12/99

Sherpas: Lhakpa, Summit Lhotse 5/12/99

Arita

Non-climbing members: Stanislav Berkovec (male 43, reporter)

Zdenek Vocasek (male 37, doctor)

The original idea of the expedition was to make double of Everest and Lhotse without huge support and without oxygen. Unfortunately, we did not collect enough money for this project. As a result, we decided for Lhotse only - without oxygen, of course.

We arrived to BC 4/20/99.

Start for climb in Khumbu icefall 4/22/99. This day, Arita, Hruby, Lhakpa, Moravek, Simunek, Vomackova established CI 6100m on the lower part of West Cwm. (Climbing team did not use CI as a camp during expedition, the tent has been used as deposit.) The same day, Hruby continued and established the first tent of CII 6400m.

4/25/99: Arita, Hruby, Lhakpa, Moravek, Simunek, Vomackova complemented and supplied CII (used as ABC).

4/27/99: Hruby, Moravek, Simunek established CIII 7400m, West wall of Lhotse.

5/5/99: Moravek, Simunek, Vomackova complemented and supplied CIII. Arita and Lhakpa deposited load in CIV. Completed climbing team in CII. Decided not establish any fixed ropes in the upper part of the route and to climb free above CIV.

5/8/99: Hruby and Moravek started from CII for the first summit attempt. In CIII weather changed, wind, snow. Couple returned to CII in the night.

5/10/99: Still windy, but better forecast for 12 and 13/05. Lhakpa, Simunek, Vomackova started from CII for the second summit attempt.

5/11/99: Lhakpa, Simunek, Vomackova reached and established CIV 8100m, just below west couloir of Lhotse. The dead body of Russian climber Abashkirov nearby doesn’t create pleasant feeling. Hruby and Moravek follow to CIII.

5/12/99: Lhakpa, Simunek, Vomackova summit at 2 pm approximately, after some 9 hours of climbing from CIV. There are not very favorable conditions in the wall. As characteristic for the whole season, there isn’t very much snow, not any firm snow. Some deep snow, broken and falling rocks, some rests of old broken fixed ropes. Hruby and Moravek replaced summit climbers in CIV, Lhakpa, Simunek, Vomackova descended to CIII.

5/13/99: Hruby and Moravek summit at 11.30 am approximately, packed in CIV and descended to CIII. In CIII, weather changed considerably - wind, snow. Decided to continue to CII, reached evenings.

5/14/99: Bad weather, the whole team descend from CII to BC. Tents in CIII and CII destroyed because of wind.

All members are OK, no any serious health problems. I would like to mention Mrs. Sona Vomackova particularly. Two high summits for her in last two years - carrying equal loads as the male members, without oxygen.

Zdenek Hruby, my new e-mail is hruby@mbox.fsv.cuni.cz

Ghosts of Everest; The Search for Mallory & Irvine  by Jochen Hemmleb, Eric Simonson, Larry Johnson 

Daily News: 8/24/99 Report

  • Blind Climber To Attempt Everest

The National Federation of the Blind (NFB) has announced that it will sponsor Erik Weihenmayer’s climb of Everest in 2001. Weihenmayer, a 30-year old former teacher from Denver, will be part of a team which will conduct an environmental clean-up of one of the high camps. Additionally, Erik will attempt to become the first blind person to step onto the top of the world.

Weihenmayer is no stranger to daunting challenges. In 1987, at age 18, he became the first blind man to trek the 60-mile Inca Trail into Machu Picchu (Peru); in 1988, he represented Connecticut in the National Freestyle Wrestling Championships; in 1995, he reached his first Continental Summit, Mt. McKinley (20,320’) in Alaska, and later that year became one of two blind solo skydivers; in 1996, he scaled Yosemite’s famous 3300’ rock face, The Nose of El Capitan; in 1997, he summited Kilimanjaro, the Roof of Africa, where he was married at 13,000’ on the Shira Plateau; in 1998, he biked tandem with his father from Hanoi to Ho Chi Minh City (1200 miles) and ran his first New York Marathon; and last January, he climbed Aconcagua (22,834’, Argentina), the highest peak in South America and the highest peak in the world outside of Asia.

Weihenmayer’s road to Everest begins this October with a 100-mile Himalayan run at high elevation in northern India, an event sponsored by World T.E.A.M. Sports (WTS) of Charlotte NC. WTS is a visionary non-profit group which works to bridge and build communities through sports, which provides greater access in sports for all people, especially those with disabilities. The second day of the run takes him 20 miles at elevations over 11,000’, with 4 of the world’s 5 highest peaks (Everest, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse, and Makalu) visible from the route along the India-Nepal border. He is currently training in Denver.

Immediately following this run, in early November, Weihenmayer will confront another challenge, this one of a personal nature: major eye surgery, evisceration, to relieve painful pressure in his right eye caused by glaucoma. He lost his left eye to glaucoma in 1988. Counting on a quick recovery, Weihenmayer is slated to climb Ama Dablam (22,500’, Nepal) in Spring 2000. Ama Dablam is visible from Everest and is touted as the most beautiful peak in the world. This precursor to Everest will further acclimate Weihenmayer to the Himalayan area.

In April/May 2001, as part of an 8-10 member team, he will attempt Everest (29,031’) from the South Col in the Kumba region of Nepal, a route given recent prominence by Into Thin Air. Only 10% of climbers attempting Everest reach the top, but this expedition includes three climbers who have already stood on top of the world.

The NFB will use these Himalayan climbs to dramatize the capabilities of blind people, to shatter the public perceptions of their limitations and to inspire them to even greater accomplishments. Weihenmayer enjoys breaking through perceived barriers, believing that these public perceptions are often more limiting than blindness itself. But his message about "daring to fail" and "not letting obstacles stand in the way of the dreams of our lives" resonates with all people, blind and sighted.

The National Federation of the Blind, headed by Dr. Marc Maurer, is a grassroots consumer and civil rights organization headquartered in Baltimore MD. NFB is the largest membership organization of blind people, with over 700 local chapters in the U.S. Its powerful voice is heard in State Houses from coast to coast; and from Congress to the White House. It is considered the most effective advocate for blind people in the world.

Weihenmayer’s feats have earned him Connecticut’s Most Courageous Athlete Award, ESPN’s ARETE Award for Courage in Sports, induction into the National Wrestling Hall of Fame, and the honor of carrying the Olympic Torch through Phoenix. He is a professional speaker at companies and schools across the country. His own articles appear frequently in national publications; and he is currently working on an autobiography.
