  • Update 31-May-00 from the 2000 Jagged Globe Everest expedition. We received a number of enquires about our movements after the summit, so..... The weather had worsened seriously between the balcony at 8500 meters and the south summit. As the winds picked up, the visibility deteriorated correspondingly. By the time we reached the summit, the wind speed was twice that forecast and was hammering around 60knots. All goggles, ice tools and clothing were heavily frosted. After reaching the top at 6.30am 24 May and waiting until both Paul and Nima Gombu had also summitted by 6.45am, we remained on the summit until 7am and then backtracked quickly along the summit ridge to the south summit. We had pushed hard to attain the top and return to this point by 7.30am, in order to avoid any congestion on the Hillary step due to other expeditions. Once back to the south summit, we descended to the south col, then continued down to camp 2 that afternoon. We finished the descent to base camp the following morning and began our trek out on 26 May. We arrived in Kathmandu on 29 May and Paul departed the same day for home. Andrew leaves today, arriving Sydney on 1 June. Whilst the highlight of the expedition was reaching the summit, after having already climbed to within just a hundred meters of the top a few days before, it is with great satisfaction that we return home knowing that the expedition concludes with all members safe and without any serious injuries. Time now for some rest and to return to our families and friends at home. Cheers Andrew Lock Expedition Leader

Route : normal 

  • K2 ! Coverage begins on Thursday!!! 

Future Plans

  • Holy Land Expeditions:

In 2001 EverestNews.com will feature Expeditions to the Holy Land lead by famous Everest climbers. Expeditions will probably include options on time and capability. For example some Expeditions might climb small mountains in the Middle East. Others would simply be trekking Expeditions. If this is something that might interest you let us know at everestnews2004@adelphia.net These Expeditions would be run by commercial Expedition companies. EverestNews.com is NOT planning on being in the Expedition business. 

  • The Mallory & Irvine debate: Jochen Hemmleb vs Tom Holzel 

  • Stats

In June/July 2000, EverestNews.com will add many facts to the site. We plan at least a day per week to add reference information to the site. 

  • The M&I debate: Jochen Hemmleb vs Tom Holzel 

Details to follow soon. 

Both authors have strong thoughts and opinions on what could have happened. EverestNews.com role, we believe, is not to take sides. We are thinking of having a special forum where readers can comment on the debate and give their thoughts on what is said.
