His six-person team had prepared long and hard for the
attempt at Everest. They climbed Mount McKinley in Alaska, as a trial and to
build strength and endurance. However with some team members only a few

Wisedale is the fourth South African to make it to the top
of the world’s tallest mountain. As a member of the Discovery Everest 2003
team Wisedale had hoped to summit the peak a day earlier to mark exactly 50

and Sherpa Tenzing Norgay.
Wisedale was a day late, but elated nonetheless.
