  Mexican-Canadian Mt Everest Expedition 2004: Update


Mexican-Canadian Mt Everest Expedition 2004 lead by Andres Delgado

Andres Delgado is sponsored in part by:

05-06-04: Hi: It is May 6th at 17:45 hours here in Nepal.  It is around 4 in the morning there in Mexico.  I just wanted to tell you I'm at Base. I got here around 14:00 hours (Nepal time).

On May 4th at 11 in the evening I left from 7,400 meters towards 8,000.  I was alone because no one from the group could climb on the 4th to 7,400 because of the wind.  At 5 in the morning on May 5th I almost got to the South Col.  I got almost to the summit of the Geneva Spur, that must be around 7,850 or 7,900 meters and I turned around there.  It was very cold and I was tired. I was back in my tent in Camp 3 (7,400 m) at 7:30 AM and I slept until noon.  At 13 hours I went down to Camp 2 and I spent the night there.

Today, the 6th, I woke up in Camp 2 and I came down to Base along with Alejandro and Luis.  I will write the whole story with details and with about 150 pictures we took.

Now I will only rest.  I will write more tomorrow.

Andrés
