 The IMG Everest Expeditions: South and North

Welcome IMG again to EverestNews.com. EverestNews.com will post dispatches from the South Side IMG Expedition and news from the North Side IMG Everest Expedition this Spring 2001.
Everest South Side 4/11/01: Got a short wake-up call from Greg Wilson this morning, and the sat-phone audio was pretty garbled, but it sounds like everyone is doing well, happy, healthy, and they're planning to spend their first night at Camp I (19,500 feet) above the Icefall, on Thursday April 12. Phil Ershler

Follow along as Phil, his wife, Greg Wilson and two businessmen send in a dispatch now and then updating the progress of their team and perhaps a thought or two as they go along. They have decided to approach the mountain the "old way" and "just focus on climbing the mountain".  "I'm guessing your readers will find it somewhat interesting in that this will be my 7th trip to the mountain and I'll be accompanied by Phil Ershler and his wife. They will be trying to reach the summit, obviously together, which will represent Susan's (Phil's wife) Seventh Summit. It will also be Phil's second time to climb all 7 if he is successful. In addition to Phil and Susan we will have two other climbers on our permit who are US businessmen trying to realize their own  personal goal of standing on top." Greg Wilson

Everest North Side 4/11/01:The 2001 Mallory & Irvine Research Expedition has begun, and a discovery has already been made! 

The team believes they have found the 1922 British expedition's Advance Base Camp. At least three oxygen cylinders from that climb were discovered below the current Advance Base Camp area. The 1922 expedition was the first to take supplemental oxygen to the mountain; its use was highly debated on grounds of the "unsporting" nature of deploying artificial aids to attempt to summit.

Web coverage started yesterday, April 11th, and you will now be able to follow the researcher's progress at the site here. The team will be sending back audio, visuals and actual video footage to the site.  Please tune in and follow along with this historical expedition.
