Summit via Nepal and Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

Excellent experience and great summit day on Everest. It all boils down to your personal decision making and Sherpa. Little bit of drama on ascent and summit push.

Southeast Ridge  Sucess!

We had good weather for our summit day, but I was fighting a bit of a cold and cough which did not make things any easier. Going from C3 to the summit, then all the way back down to C2 with just a short 8 hour rest at C4 made for an exhausting push. Have some frostbite issues on my left big toe, but the doctors have given me hope for recovery. Bummed that I will miss most if not all of the summer climbing season at home. Still, a great experience that I wouldn't trade.

Everest Tibet summit success   Sucess!

Summited Everest from the North at 12pm on May 25th, 2010.
To assist others on how to prepare for Everest and what the North East route is like I have written the book "Reaching for Everest - an inspirational book on climbing mountains and pushing boundaries in life".

A perfect day on the roof of the world  Sucess!

Very, very lucky I was with the nice weather on the summit day. Stood on the summit at only 5am in the morning, after a climb from the South Col. After all I must say, it was not so terrible exhausting as I thought it would be. A truly beautiful summit!

Windy Summit  Sucess!

This was my 3rd of the 7 Summits Climb for Alzheimer's - going for all in one year. The climb was windy and cold.

Cleo Weidlich - Everest  Sucess!

Was stuck on that snail traffic above the balcony. I had the usual bad weather of 8000ers on my summit day. The number of people was a little scary, as it made even more unsafe going up or down the mountain. And the number of people unskilled for an 8000er was even scarier. Glad I did well and it was over soon.

Sout East Ridge  Sucess!

Summited at 10:00am. Poor conditions with no view but not too cold. Stayed on summit for about 30 minutes. Weather improved during descent. Arrived back at base camp just in time for a one meter snow storm. Completion of Seven Summits.

South East Ridge via South Col  Sucess!

Reportedly the busiest day in history, 88 climbers summitted, all from the south side. The queues were terrible, we were at the back of the line and went through phases where we had to wait 2 or 3 minutes between steps, it was more like Snowdon than Everest!

Not the romantic summit experience you dream of, but we got there. Had an hour on top before the cloud and snow came in. 13 hours up (queues!!) and 4.5 hours down.

A fantastic experience!

Had a great time but got HACE at Base camp. Very weird. Recovered ok but got HAPE at Camp 2 about 5 weeks later.

North Ridge- Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Beautiful day! Half hour on top alone. Left the summit at 8am, was back at the North Col at 1pm, breaking down camps along the way. 2 days later went up to 7200m and telemark skied down.

North Ridge- Northeast Ridge  Sucess!

Summit 6:50am, first group up top. Horrible weather, 6 deaths this day, on this route. We were up and down before we heard anybody was in trouble. I went from summit to ABC in 5.5 hours.

Route Climbed: The North Ridge Tibet

I was forced back to base camp after having spent several at ABC (21, 500 ft.) My altitude cough was uncontrollable and developed into pleuritis. I eventually broke ribs from coughing. Disappointed? Yes, but I got to go. I would not have traded the experience for anything.

N Col / NE Ridge  Sucess!

We had truly BAD weather in 2005, mostly un-climbable winds. I just feel lucky that all 5 of us (Monica, Jean, Sonam Sherpa, Dawa Sherpa, and myself) summitted without anything epic happening.
