Update 6/25/2001: Peter Guggemos is fine and still climbing on K2.

A report that Peter Guggemos, leader of the German (International) Focus K2 Expedition, was "evacuated" by helicopter alarmed some folks. Our EverestNews.com sources for K2 DID NOT report this information to us causing us to wonder. EverestNews.com checked again with our sources who knew nothing about this. We then contacted Focus expeditions.

Manuel Lugli, expedition leader and general manager of Focus Expeditions in Italy stated to EverestNews.com that the report is "FAKE". "PETER GUGGEMOS IS SAFE AND SOUND, STILL CLIMBING WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM." 

As we stated in May, our approach this year is to do the very best we can for you, and not address these cases of bad reporting. If someone is reporting something you think is untrue, e-mail them and tell them so! 

However, of course, when web sites and/or newspapers report falsely  names of climbers who died and/or rescued and that simply did not happen, then we must address in this case.


Manuel Lugli is a member of the Ararat 2001 Peace Climb. Manuel did get injured a few weeks ago, and is now trying to recover so he can attend the climb. We hope he recovers in time!

Update 5/22/2001: EverestNews.com is receiving reports from family members and friends stating others web sites are reporting climbers on Everest that are not even there this year [That is a good one!].  Reports of climbers still on the mountain who have left Everest. Reports of Summits by climbers who has not. In past years EverestNews.com has addressed some of these cases. Our approach this year is to do the very best we can for you, and not address these cases. If someone is reporting something you think is untrue, e-mail them and tell them so!

Update 4/11/2001: EverestNews.com can always use volunteers who can translate different languages. As You know, if you have been with us for a while, EverestNews.com is a web site that attempts to cover climbers from all over the world on Everest and therefore is a world wide site. A fact that may surprise many is that only 35% of our visitors are from the U.S. EverestNews.com receives numerous e-mails and reports in many different languages and is always looking for volunteers to assist us from time to time translate them or confirm translations. Also, one of our main translators went climbing this spring. Imagine that!!! If you want to help please e-mail us everestnews2004@adelphia.net Thanks in advance from all our readers and everyone here at EverestNews.com
