International Everest 2002 Expedition
2002 Expedition Report May 16th, 2002
am, May 16, 2002, Jason Rodi and I have just
summitted! Willie Benegas from Alpine 8000 is here,
and team member Robert Geier is just arriving. The
weather is beautiful with sun shining and only 5-10
mph winds; the temp is about 0-10 degrees F. There are
about 30-35 other climbers on the summit right now,
about 25 more are on their way down after
summiting, and at least 15 more on their way up. The
lines were really jammed, creating about a 45-60
minute wait at the Hillary Step.
a long day already. It took us about twelve hours to
summit from the South Col. Here at the top I take
five steps and Iím out of breath. This is a tough
mountain. I have gained even more respect for it than
I already had...
