Shadow of Everest

Apologies for the late posting of this Newsletter but due to technical difficulties we were unable to get it onto the website on Saturday, 22nd May, when 12 members, 17 Sherpas and four guides of the Himex team summited Mount Everest. The first members of the Himex crew to reach the top of the world were Jing Wang, Nima Sona and our guide Hiro, who got there at 6.05am.

“Dave McKinley and Nuru Gylzen stayed at the South Col to operate the radios and make sure to be in contact with everyone,” Russell told me when he rang m......

Presummit Meetings

Himex crew on their push for the summit Sorry for the late update on where the members of the Himex team are, but bad communication and the fact that I am back in Kathmandu has made updating this site a bit more difficult than anticipated.

As you will probably know, on 17th and 18th May, a massive summit push was underway with dozens (or maybe even hundreds) of people reaching the top of Mount Everest. For Russell’s team, the time had not come during that period as the weather window......

One of the highest First Aid courses in the world With most other teams reporting about the summit pushes that are currently happening despite the short weather window, the alleged race between two women trying to become the first Finnish female to reach the top of Mount Everest and the high winds, I will spare you any more details about the weather forecasts and the waiting game that is currently being played by all expeditions.

That does not mean that the Himex team is not doing what many of the other teams are doing – namely twiddling their thumbs impatiently. However, our doctor......

Phurba and Lopsang

Leaving the Land of the Sherpas The Himex expedition is now well into its fifth week in the Khumbu region, which is the home of the Sherpas, the mountain people who look after us so well in the Himalaya. The Sherpas are actually an ethnic group that arrived in the eastern parts of Nepal from Tibet around 250 years ago. They used to live off the trade with Tibet, however, when China occupied Tibet in 1950, the borders were closed and trade between the two countries was reduced to zero.



Another day at base camp

While I was walking down the hill to reach Lukla in two days, life at base camp has carried on as usual. I spoke to Russell last night and he told me that the guides and some team members had moved some more rocks to flatten the base for the tents (the glacier is obviously melting away quickly), and that Himex and some other teams had made the new helipad an even better one.

“A few helicopters have landed, and our construction has not ......

Large Rock Move 01 New helipad and other recreational activities Base camp has been reasonably quiet with most teams having moved down the valley to recover from the strains at high altitude and enjoy some ‘lodge life’. As already mentioned, the Himex team has opted not to go down to the lower elevations but stay at base camp and use the time to relax or watch movies in the White Pod, go for walks, write emails or do more exhausting activities, such as building a new helipad.

With an increasing number of helicopter flights arriving at base camp, the need for a second helipad a......

Phurpa rope fixing towards south summit

Back to Base Thursday was a big day for everyone here at base camp with our three Sherpas and Adrian returning from Camp 2 after having reached the summit of Mount Everest the previous day. With Phurba Tashi’s 16* summits, Dorji Sonam’s 12 summits, Ang Rita’s seven summits and Adrian’s two summits, the Himex team has put a total of 37 summits on the top of the world on Thursday. “I guess together with the other six Sherpas from IMG and Alpine Acents, there must have been around 80 successful summits......

Ama Dablam Himex Everest Expedition 2010 is kicking off After having put 59 people, including Sherpas, guides and clients on the summit of Mount Everest via the South Col Route in 2009, Himex is back on the Nepali side of the world’s highest peak. This year Himex owner, Russell Brice, is leading a team of 18 clients, 24 climbing Sherpas, five mountain guides and seven cook staff, and following last year’s success rate of 86 percent, the team will once again try to aim for the best.
