Everest Updates – 25th May


Updates from 25th May from those aiming to climb high on Everest in 2023 



Pinter Laszlo

We are still waiting for news about Szilárd Suhajda
Thank you very much for the overwhelming love, concern and interest, I think I can say this on behalf of Timi, Szilárd’s wife. We would love to keep everyone updated, but at the moment, we are doing all our best to clarify the situation. We respectfully ask you to be patient, not every little detail is disclosed exactly because it will feed unnecessary speculation. Hardly anyone who is close to Szilárd waits for the news better, they know this even on the home base.
What you know: Szilárd’s satellite follower worked with quite large omissions during the summit attack. The latest indication, at 19:30 Nepali time, she walked 8795 metres at Hillary’s staircase and moved upwards. This is 50 meters in elevation from the summit, but in the case, this could be several hours of climbing. His beacon has not sent any more signals since, and he has not contacted me in any other way.
This in itself isn’t necessarily a curiosity. During his climb to Lhotse last year, we had no idea for two days where he was going, what was going on with him, he didn’t report from the top, while he thought that we were following his progress in a premier plan at home based on the tracker. Assuming that we can’t see his tracker data, he is still descending down nicely slowly from the mountain. We have no information about why the transmitter does not work and we do not want to guess.
Szilárd was very late than usual on very high and has been on the road for a long time. Nevertheless, we are confident that he made a decision to the best of his knowledge and to the best of him, he will return safely.
We asked Szilárd’s agency for two sherpas to go up front of camp 4 so that when he hopefully gets down in the morning, they can wait for him with liquid. This is not a rescue operation. In parallel, we contacted several agencies to find out who else could be counted on to obtain information or even help. A big thank you to Martin Peter Price, who reached the peak on 14 May, to whom we may be thanks to the most valuable contact. There are still leading parties who are in peak attack right now and have offered their help if they meet Szilárd and need it.
Waiting for the morning for now and hopefully positive news.



Kami Rita Sherpa

Reaching the top of the world for the 28th time! Feeling immensely proud to showcase the indomitable human spirit and inspire younger generations. Climbing runs through my veins, and I’ve been scaling mountains since my teenage years.
Before embarking on each journey, I offer my prayers to the mountain gods, establishing a deep connection with these majestic peaks and the people who hold them in reverence.
I’m always ready to lend a helping hand and make dreams come true for as many people as I can, for as long as I can.
Records never drove me; it was my unwavering passion and hard work that led me to this point. I’m honored to spread the names of our Sherpa brothers and represent my country to the world.
No matter the adversities we face, we never lose hope.
A massive shoutout to my incredible team members and all the individuals who supported me throughout this extraordinary journey. Let’s keep spreading love, inspiring others, and embracing the boundless wonders of our planet.



Tashi Lakpa Sherpa

Huge congratulations to my Son Nima Rinji Sherpa for the successful ascent of Mt. Everest (8848.86m) & Mt. Lhotse (8516m) yesterday morning.
Nima summited Everest at 2:30 AM and Lhotse at 11:50 AM within 10 hours at the age of 17 years and 35 days. By achieving this feat, he has become the youngest ever to accomplish the double headers (Everest – Lhotse).
In the autumn of 2022, at the age of 16 years, Nima climbed the Manaslu Main Summit (8163m).
Climbing Partners: Pasang Nurbu and Ser Jangbu Sherpa 🇳🇵
Well done!! MY DEAR SON !!
