Read their dispatches from Spring 2002 here.


Welcome to Adventures International Everest 2002 Expedition on the south side of Everest. This expedition is actually a combined effort with Alpine 8000 from Britain; we will share a permit and base camp facilities. Willie Benegas is leading the Alpine 8000 group; Scott Woolums, Adventures International Director, is leading the North American party. Scott is an accomplished high altitude guide, with 25 years experience. This is his second attempt on Everest; he has previously guided 16 Himalayan climbs including  summits of Pumori, Ama Dablam, Great Trango Tower, and Cho Oyu, plus 26 expeditions on Aconcagua and 30 ascents of McKinley on 42 expeditions. Adventures International Team includes Scott, Jack Gerstein from Colorado, and the father and son duo of Bruno and Jason Rodi of Canada--all of whom have previously climbed with Adventures International in the last 5 years on various high altitude peaks around the world. The team will be supported on the mountain by a strong group of sherpas, lead by Sirdar, Phenden Sherpa. "This is the style of trip we believe in: small, well organized, experienced, easy to manage and focused on climbing the mountain not the politics surrounding it. We have consistently limited our trips to 6 or less, which represents our commitment to safety and quality personal experience. Stay tuned for frequent dispatches from the field… ", Scott Woolums Adventures International Inc.
