Sponser Announced

I have great pleasure in announcing EnergySolutions as the Major Sponsor of my Everest 2008 Expedition.

EnergySolutions is a full-service nuclear fuel cycle company that is committed to environmental protection, energy independence and a safe and growing industry. With their dedication to environmental friendliness, EnergySolutions is solving the problems of global warming and energy dependence in addition to cleaning up the environmental consequences of the cold war.

Climbing big mountains involves incredible preparation, dedication and teamwork. No amount of determination is able to get these big scale expeditions off the ground without the proper funding. I sincerely thank EnergySolutions for their vision, support and belief in my project.

Going South!

I have decided on the route I will attempt Everest. It will be the route that brought the first summits in 1953, for Hillary and Tenzing Norgay- the South East Ridge route ( this assumes Mallory and Irvine were unsuccesful !!). I have attached a picture of the route. Also, by double clicking on the picture on my first post, you can see the route, for real, from the summit of Cho Oyu in 2006.
