 Illegal Everest climbs North side 2002!

Various climbers have told EverestNews.com that they believe there were illegal climbs (!) on the North side of Everest this year.  

Climbers have told EverestNews.com that one of the illegal climbers possibly died! Another company told EverestNews.com, "We did receive information on the climbs. But due to the unavailability of real proof, we cannot go ahead."

Due to the large numbers of rescues and climbers who had to be helped down or were just struggling down the mountain this year on the North side, it is hard to determine if one of these illegal climbers was actually lost. It is highly possible that those who believed one of the illegal climbers was lost, confused these illegal climbers with other climbers who had serious problems. We assume this is the case...

Climbers and expedition companies are not happy at all about these events on the North side of Everest in Spring 2002. Look for this story to quietly continue ....  "Real proof" is going to be difficult, unless a family comes forward looking for a relative. But that has not happened yet to our knowledge....

A wild and crazy year on the North side with many unsupported climbers. In Simone Moro's words, "more than 70% of the climber I saw in base camp are not ready to try Everest and logic is they will continue to have problems in that and other high mountains. They must be happy that they are still in life and that no storm came seriously on the mountain. It is not enough to run 1 hour every day, or climb Aconcagua or Cho Oyu or other simple climb to consider him/her self ready for Everest. This mentality will continue to be the Russian roulette for many climbers and the death of many values."
