BRAZILIAN EVEREST LHOTSE EXPEDITION is sponsored by

O BOTICΑRIO, VOLKSWAGEN and PETROBRΑS

Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World: 59th day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World. 9:30 Lhotse - 24:40 Brazil Lhotse's summit 8,501m

The altimeter reads 8,563m, the official altitude is 8,501m and also accepted are 8,521m or 8,516m. But never mind.  The important thing is that today, October 5th, 2002, at 9;30h the Brazilian flag waved for the first time on LHOTSE'S SUMMIT, commemorating the International Year of the Mountains.  The temperature here is 28 negative degrees Celsius and we are almost freezing.  Irivan and I are very happy.

VIVA O BRASIL!

10h00 - Base Camp 5,400m - 01:10 Brazil

We lose contact with our team on the summit of Lhotse, the cold temperatures froze the radios that Irivan and Waldemar were using to communicate with Base Camp.  The emotion that invaded the two climbers also was spread among all the team at Base Camp.  The feeling of victory is something indescribable for our team, after almost 60 days doing a hard work, now we are totally gratified.

We thank our families for their support and understanding, we thank specially our sponsors: O BOTICΑRIO, Volkswagen and Petrobrαs, without their partnership we wouldn't be able to make the dream of the people of Brazil come true.

We also thank the support given by NERA, TISSOT, CHOCO BIS and CLUB SOCIAL.  

We are waiting any moment for a new contact with Waldemar Niclevicz and Irivan Gustavo Burda to transmit our friends the emotion of this moment.

12h00 - Lhotse's Summit 8,501m - 03h10 Brazil

We are beginning the descent from Lhotse. We had unforgettable moments here on the summit watching a landscape of infinite beauty. We could see Everest very close and the mountain system of the Himalayas.

20h00 - Camp 4 (7,860m) - Camp 2 (6,500m)

What a beautiful day!  You were with us through On Line yesterday on the conquest of Lhotse which happened today at 9h30 in the morning, Nepal time.  After arriving at 8,501m high, we started our long descent to Camp 4.  The day was really spectacular, a gift of God.

We paid attention to the progress of the Japanese expedition on Everest.  It's incredible, they did not reach the summit for just a little! At the end of the afternoon we could spot them on the South Summit at 8,751m high.  What a shame, probably nobody will climb Everest this autumn.

We dismounted our Camp 4 and continued descending until we reached our Camp 2 exhausted, after a total of 2,000m of descent.  In spite of our exhaustion, we are very satisfied with the climb of Lhotse.

Well, folks, now we are going to rest because we are dying to sleep.  We are going down to Base Camp tomorrow and we'll tell you details of the climb and we'll show you the beautiful pictures of the final attack.

if you missed the Everest summit report, you will want to read it: Scary: I saw with a weak light two bodies laying in the snow...
