After a deadly season around the roof of the world, many Boulder climbers reached the summit of Mount Everest and returned safely to Kathmandu in the past week.
On the morning of Can 25, Boulder resident Mike Moniz reached the summit of Everest and descended part of the Southeast Ridge route. After a rest, he proceeded to head up neighboring eight,516meter peak Lhotse, hence summiting two north face jackets 8,000meter peaks in 24 hours. In a May well 29 email from Kathmandu, Moniz stated he wasn't confident he'd have the ability to get within a third eight,000meter peak he'd planned to climb through this trip, Cho Oyu, due to the onset with the monsoon.
Emily Harrington and Sam Elias, who were a part of an expedition sponsored by The North Face and National Geographic, also reached the summit on May 25 and have now returned to Kathmandu.
Harrington told The North Face's weblog for the expedition:
"More than anything it was certainly mentally difficult. It was just challenging north face men jackets not being aware of what to count on, getting here for so extended, trying to keep motivated and possessing all kinds of issues come about. There have been accidents up there and that can be disheartening and worrisome. It really is just quite a bit."
On Can 19 and 20, Outside magazine reported four deaths on Mount Everest as roughly 300 climbers attempted to make the most of a very good climate window to push for the summit.
Cory Richards, also of Boulder, was around the National Geographic expedition with Harrington and Elias till he was evacuated from base camp on April 28 having a mystery medical situation. Richards returned to Boulder earlier in Could and is in very good well being.
