Everest Expedition 2008
Top trekking & BC shots

We planned an expedition to Tibet but this was not to be, with the Tibet riots and Olympic torch shenanigans, so we climbed from the Nepal side. Originally we were a team of 11 climbers and two groups for BC support, this changed to six climbers and one team for BC support. Three out of our six climbers summitted on the 21st of May, 2008, plus Jamie and four sherpas.

See the expedition dispatches for a full account and many more photos.
