Ancient history, mountaineering, cycling and other outside adventures

“A good night to go for a walk to the top of the world”

Now that’s a good quote. Not sure if that was Peter Whittaker or someone else from the team. But it was good. First ascent team departs….11 PM local time. This just posted.

Everestnews.net is reporting that the Kanagawa University team from Japan has summited two climbers today: Yasunori Tanaka, age 57 and Kenta Miyamori, 28 at 10:45 AM local time. Congratulations!

Head on over to Alan Arnette’s 2009 Everest site for continual updates from here on in. The thought of putting 100 people on top of Everest in a day is astounding, to me anyway.
