  Adventure Peaks aborting summit attempt on Everest


Update 5/21/2004: - The Team have aborted their Summit Attempt. Dave called early this morning to let me know that our team have decided to abort their summit attempt and are currently on their way down back to ABC. The team were involved yesterday in assisting climbers who were coming back from summit attempts in bad ways, unfortunately some of the climbers from other teams have not returned.

It's extremely difficult to express the disappointment for the team, all of which have dedicated the last year to preparing for this. On the other hand, we have to admire the courage that every one of them made the decision to turn around as they had doubts about carrying on.

The team have asked me to thank the Sherpas, who throughout the expedition have done a splendid job getting everything in place ready for them, and the last few days the Sherpas have been with the team, carrying & ensuring the team have been fed & watered at each high camp. As the team descend, the Sherpas will now start the task of stripping down each camp and carrying all the equipment back to ABC.

The team hope to be back into Kathmandu on the 27th May and to the UK shortly after that.

I would like to thank every one for all the support and kind words of encouragement for the team that we have received over the last 2 months
