 Pete Athans: Everest Millennium and Beyond

Pete Athans on the Summit of Everest Copyright©Bill Crouse

In the spring of 1999 a team of three mountaineers planned to climb Everest, it’s neighboring high peaks Lhotse and Nuptse and conduct a series of experiments utilizing the Global Positioning System network.  Accompanied by two film makers and scientists from National Geographic, the Boston Museum of Science and MIT, the climbers were able to retrieve the most accurate data ever taken from Mount Everest leading to development of the most accurate topographical and geological Maps currently available. From their expedition we learned that Everest is not only still growing taller but is also moving north-east further into Tibet!

     But Everest Millennium and Beyond is much more than a story about a scientific team on Mount Everest. It is told by Pete Athans, six time Everest summiter, who has been traveling in Nepal, Tibet, China and Pakistan for more than 20 years. A frequent contributor to National Geographic Television, Pete has been on the summit of Everest more than any other western climber and was awarded the highest citation given by the American Alpine Club for his rescue of Beck Weathers in 1996.  His presentation documents the surreal beauty of Everest in still photography and video, from basecamp to the summit. More importantly, Pete illuminates the lives and culture of the Sherpas who reside in the high valleys surrounding the world’s highest mountain.  If you ever wanted to climb Everest or contemplate its sublime beauty don’t miss this show!
