IMG/Women's 2002 Everest Expedition

IMG will again attempt to lead a commercial expedition on Everest's South Side in Spring 2002.

This commercial expedition will be lead by Eric Simonson. Members include Lynn Prebble (49, a physical therapist from Colorado who has summited Cho Oyu), Jody Thompson (38, a nurse from Colorado has summited Rainer, Denali and a failed attempt on Ama Dablam in 98), Kim Clark (34; a third year nursing student at the University of Colorado who has summited Denali), Alison Levine (35, an investment banker for Goldman Sacks), Midge Cross (58, who has climbed Aconcagua) will be climbing on this commercial expedition. Dave Hahn, Lisa Rust, and Ben Marshall will be guides on the expedition. Look for the press coverage [Newspapers, TV, stuff] to overwhelm everything else on Everest this year with the big sponsor [FORD]... It is expected to be covered EVERYWHERE with the big sponsor... 

Other climbers are expected to include Phil and Susan Ershler. More added soon...with more names..

The Expedition has arrived at Base Camp in force! The heavily sponsored expedition has 15-20 climbing Sherpas and is huge! It will be interesting to see how Eric handles Everest 2002, for more see here...
