Everest 2004: The Dutch are at the intermediate camp...
Update 8/31/2004: Yesterday they arrived at the intermediate camp between BC
and ABC, 5800 meters high. Marc Streefkerk is still at BC waiting for Boris.
Boris is now back at base camp. He has had especially a lot of head pain as a
result of the altitude. Antibiotics time!
On the Tibet Side of Everest, a Dutch Team will attempt the mountain.
The Dutch team is
Werner de Jong (expedition leader)
Marc Streefkerk (climber)
Mark Thijssen (climber)
Boris Krielen (climber)
Sander Arens (climber)
