Everest North Side Expedition:  Adventure Peaks


 Current Tibet Date/Time

Report Group one: The team are currently at Advanced Base Camp (ABC) which is situated right under the North Col and North Ridge, they arrived there on Saturday. Yesterday and today saw the fixing of the fixed rope to the North Col at 7000metres by 2 other teams, our Sherpas will be involved in the fixing higher on the mountains as all the teams Sherpas assist in this task together. Check here for the full report.

Report: 21st April: All the team except Dave have returned back to BC to enjoy a few well earned rest days. The team experienced another wild stormy night at ABC before descending. The team will rest at BC for about 4 to 5 days before journeying back to ABC to push higher up the mountain. Check here for the full report.

Report: Report No 5 - 28 April - "BACK AT ABC": Lassitude, lethargy, langour. Or is it just downright laziness? One of the most noticeable effects of spending time at this altitude is the extreme level of apathy that results. Check here for the full report.

Report: Report No 6 - Tuesday 29 April: David emailed today to let us know that the team have now gone back to the North Col to spent tonight with the intention of pushing up to around 7700m to the next camp. They will then probably descend back to the North Col to sleep or ABC. The aim of acclimasation is to climb high, sleep low.  Check here for the full report.

Report No 7 -  6th May: The team are currently all safe and well at BC. Everest has been seriously hit by over 100 mile winds causing extensive damage to tents and camps. Our team have been lucky in terms that they havenít lost any tents at BC and ABC, as some expeditions have been reported to have lost everything and have had to abandon any chance of summiting. Check here for the full report.

Report No 8 - Friday 9th May: After several weeks of quite good weather allowing the team to acclimatise quickly and for the camps to be quickly established on the mountain, Everest finally awoke !!!  Check here for the full report.

Report No 9 - Accurate weather forecasts, plans and getting sprayed! Check here for the full report.

Report No 10 - Dave phoned today to inform me that Conan, Peter and Whalid after receiving updated weather forecast set off up to ABC. Dave, Philip and Patricia will move to ABC tomorrow. The weather window now is looking extremely favorable for a summit attempt on the 20th & 21st May.  Check here for the full report.

Report No 10 - Summit Plans Check here for the full report.

Reports No 11 & 12: A few hours after our update was posted on Friday the team changed there summit plans. Check here for the full report.

UPDATE - 23 May 2003: All climbing above 8000m is extremely hazardous and accepted by those who undertake the challenge of the worlds highest mountain, on Everest the dangers of high altitude are the most testing. What happened to Conan Harrod on May 21st at 8.30am was a result of a mountaineering accident, another climber from an American Company, slipped and fell pulling on the fixed rope, he in turn pulled off his sherpa who finally pulled on our client Conan who fell breaking his leg at 8500m. Assistance was given to get Conan back on the ridge where pain killing drugs were given. Check here for the full report.

UPDATE: CONAN WAS CLIMBING EVEREST FOR CHARITY: Conan and Dave will be home Tuesday 3rd June. Once again many thanks to all those involved in Conan's rescue. Thanks for all the emails and phone calls from all over the world enquiring about Conan. The amount of courage he himself showed in his rescue proved to me that he DID summit Everest. Check here for the full report.
