Adventures International Everest 2002 Expedition

 

Everest 2002 Expedition Report May 16th, 2002 

10:45 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. 

Been 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...
