  The report of the Mexican-Canadian Summiting Everest!! : Mr. Namgya Sherpa Summits Everest without oxygen


Mexican-Canadian Mt Everest Expedition 2004 lead by Andres Delgado

Andres Delgado is sponsored in part by:

Back in Camp 4: Via radio and a satellite phone, Andres informed a few minutes ago some details about the Mexican-Canadian Expedition summit attack.

The Mexican Canadian could only get three of their members on the summit of Everest.  The first to get there was Martin along with Namgya Sherpa, who reached the summit at 7:35 in the morning.  At 11:00 a. m. Alejandro Ochoa and Luis Espinoza made it to the summit.  All of them with supplemental oxygen, except for Namgya who made it without supplemental oxygen.  

Andrés, Richard and Tom did not use supplemental oxygen in the summit attack, and Richard had to quit the ascent because he was feeling very tired.  When Andrés was at 8,700 meters without oxygen, in good conditions to reach the summit, Tom, who was a behind started to feel very sick and had to be rescued by Andrés with the help of Héctor Ponce de León and Andrew Lock, from the Discovery Channel team.  Two hours later they got to Camp 4 in the South Col, from where Andrés talked by phone to inform that they were fine and that Tom was recovering after the emergency measures (Diamox, dexametasone and oxygen) that were applied to him.  He told us they will spend the night in Camp 4 using supplemental oxygen to recover from the tremendous effort.  By sunrise they will go down to Base Camp if possible, or just to Camp 2. Andrés was heard a little disappointed for not reaching his goal, but satisfied for participating in the rescue of his teammate, with the help of Héctor and Andrew.  Here from Mexico, our most sincere thanks to Héctor and Andrew for his help for Tom.  We also thank deeply José Luis Abreu who had us informed about the advance of the group by e-mail, since their departure from Base Camp to the summit of Everest. Santiago Delgado Translated from Spanish by Jorge Rivera

A team Message: All of us on the Canadian/Mexcian Expedition "take off our hats" and "raise a glass" to The Discovery Channel expedition! Thanks to all of you!
