Everest Updates – 21st May


Updates on 21st May from those aiming to climb high on Everest in 2024



Arnold Coster

“After an uncertain start on the Tibet side and a necessary switch to south, today we got our first summits.
This morning 4:30-5am summited:
Cesar Vasquez, Devon Levesque, Jon Kedrowski, JenJen Bhote, Dawa Sange Shepa, Pimba Bhote and Pinjo Bhote.
Our staff did an amazing job getting all equipment and oxygen in place last moment. Without their support and unimaginable hard work this summit would have been impossible!”

“Kaspar has successfully reached the summit of Everest!
A bigger celebration must be left to the moment he is safely returned to base camp. Although going up is incredibly difficult and time consuming, going down is even more dangerous!”

“Our team are at Camp 2 on their summit push. The team has been incredibly patient, waiting for the perfect time to advance, and we hope that today is that time. Rob, Ang Dorjee and the 5 climbers will wake with the sun and reattempt a push up to C3 in what we expect to be kinder weather conditions than their first attempt. Wish them luck as they climb to 7,200m!”
