  Adventure Peaks Mt Everest 2004 Expedition


Report No 8 - Wednesday 28th April - Jill Pinkerton Adventure Peaks Office: Following on from yesterdays report, when I noted that Kevin was returning to ABC on Thursday with Tony and that he was feeling better, it has now turned out that Kevin has sadly had to leave BC & the team today to return to Kathmandu (he'll arrive there Thursday) as he has been diagnosed by another teams doctor who was at BC with pleurisy.

Tony & Ewen plan to go to ABC, taking 2 days leaving on Friday. The rest of the team are currently descending the 22km back to BC, Dave will follow to BC tomorrow as he has stayed behind to co ordinate with our Sherpas the setting up of all our remaining camps ensuring that whilst the team are resting at BC the next 7 to 10 days waiting for the weather window, that when it does arrive, everything is in place in order to allow their summit bid to take place.

The team will now be starting to monitor the weather reports that are been emailed to BC & ABC, looking for that spell when the winds will die.

From myself in the office, and the team we wish Kevin a speedy recovery, we are all thinking of him.

Report No 7 - Tuesday 27th April - Jill Pinkerton: The group have returned safely from the North Col back to ABC today. They will then return to BC tomorrow. Kevin & Tony are preparing to leave BC on Thursday to walk to ABC, they are both feeling a lot better now. Our Sherpas are doing a grand job, since arriving on the mountain they have been busy setting up each camp, which involves carrying huge loads up and down the North Col, as well as playing a major role on the mountain by fixing the ropes, Dave reported this morning that they have now fixed the ropes to 7800metres, and have set up the teams camp at 7800metres, they will remain at ABC and continue to prepare the other 2 camps as well as carrying all the teams oxygen supplies.

Report No 6 - Monday 26th April 2004 From Jill Pinkerton, Adventure Peaks Office: Dave has just called the office from his bed at the North Col (7000metres) to let us know that everyone is doing great and ok. They left ABC as planned Sunday, from which they ascended back to the North Col, and spent Sunday night at 7000metres. Today (Monday) they have all ascended along the North Ridge to around 7200metres before retreating back to their tents on the North Col to spend their second night at 7000metres. Tuesday they will return to ABC then to BC on Wednesday to enjoy clean clothes, powered shower, rest and a beer at the BC Tibetan Beer tent.
