NEWSFLASH: 57th day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World. Camp 4 (8,000m) – EVEREST (8,848m). Towards the Top of the World 16h30 – Base Camp - 8h20 ( Brazil ) The new Everest’s summit attack was confirmed for today at 22h00 (local), 13h00 (Brazil). The Brazilian team along with the Japanese team will join efforts to open again the route to the Top of the World. Waldemar and Irivan are very well and they will spend all day resting at Camp 4 (8,000m). The Brazilian duo, despite the risk of new avalanches and strong wind, are full of hope to conquer this new victory for the Brazilian people.

11h00 – Base Camp – 2h50 (Brazil) We ask you all for your understanding because we are having problems with our energy systems, so there could be some delays in the transmission for On Line. This happened this early morning, so we apologize for the delay in the news update.

10h00 – 8,000m – Camp 4 – 1h50 (Brazil) We were informed via radio that the Japanese team has left Camp 3 towards Camp 4 with the objective of attacking Everest’s summit this night too. We are happy with this news because we will join efforts during this hard job of opening the route to the summit.

7h30 – 8,000 – Camp 4 – 22h40 (Brazil) Now in the morning we decide a new attack to Everest’s summit and, as we have planed, our Sherpas have descended to Camp 2. Irivan and me spent all day resting here in the South Col, using oxygen and Alir Wellner, who is OK, will descend with the Sherpas.

6h30 - Base Camp  (5.400) 21h40 ( Brazil ) The day cleared with us having no contact via radio, with the equipment that was in the South Col. All night long, with our base radio on all time, we tried several contacts, but we didn't get any answer.

We went then to the Japanese Base Camp for some information and the answer was that yesterday, the Japanese team did not go to the summit because of the strong winds. So the information is not reliable.

Here at base camp we don't have accurate information, we can not state that our team is now going towards the summit or if they stayed at Camp 4.

4h30 – 8,000m – Camp 4 – 19h40 (Brazil) We have just returned to Camp 4 after an incident in the ascent to the summit. We are all OK, but we were victims of a layer avalanche, that means, a slip of a big area of snow. Irivan and Mingma Sherpa were swept by the force of the snow for more than 150 meters down the mountain. In that moment to Sherpas panicked along with two members of the Korean team who were a bit behind. Very luckily, Irivan and Mingma, could grip the ice and resist the force of the avalanche. We decided to go back to Camp 4 where we will have an evaluation of the new attack. The scared Sherpas want to go back early tomorrow to Camp 2. I believe it will be a difficult mission to convince the to continue attacking Everest...
