St. Petersburg Everest - 2003 Jubilee Expedition

This expedition is organized for the St. Petersburg Mountaineering Federation and devoted the 300-th anniversary of St. Petersburg and the 50-th anniversary of the Mt. Everest first ascent. It includes very strong and experienced climbers from Russia and other countries. Andrey Ershov (he has organized many expeditions in the Pamirs, Tien-Shan, Kun-Lun and Himalayas) is the expedition leader, Anatoly Moshnikov (he has done a lot of high-altitude climbs, one ascent of Dhaulagiri and two ascents of Mt. Everest without bottled oxygen) is the expedition climbing leader and coach.

The training period is finished and the Expedition Organizing Committee announced the participants of the expedition:

1. Mr. Andrey Ershov (St.Petersburg, Russia) - expedition leader

2. Mr. Anatoly Moshnikov (St.Petersburg, Russia) - climbing team leader/coach

3. Mr. Dmitry Pryuts (St.Petersburg, Russia) - expedition doctor

4. Mr. Nikolay Totmianin (St.Petersburg, Russia)

5. Mr. Nikolay Pimkin (St.Petersburg, Russia)

6. Mrs. Marina Ershova (St.Petersburg, Russia)

7. Mr. Valery Shamalo (St.Petersburg, Russia)

8. Mr. Valery Ivanov (St.Petersburg, Russia)

9. Mr. Gennady Shpynev (St.Petersburg, Russia)

10. Mr. Viktor Smirnov (St.Petersburg, Russia)

11. Mr. Nikolay Belyaev (St.Petersburg, Russia)

12. Mr. Valery Reznik (St.Petersburg, Russia)

13. Mr. Sergey Semiletkin (St.Petersburg, Russia)

14. Mr. Vladimir Gaidamak (Omsk, Russia, lives in Germany)

15. Mr. Andrey Dulskiy (Irkutsk, Russia)

16. Mr. Vladimir Belous (Bratsk, Russia)

17. Mr. Tom Masterson (from Quebec, Canada, now living in Colorado)

All of them except the expedition leader and doctor will try to climb Mt.Everest. At least three persons want to do that without bottled oxygen.

Besides these persons we have several reserve members from St. Petersburg and several requests about participation in the expedition from climbers from the other regions of Russia and other countries. It is very likely that some of them will be included in the expedition team.

Now our members continue their preparation in the mountains of Russia and other countries. We plan to arrive in Kathmandu about March 28 and then drive to Tibet. Best regards, Andrey Ershov
