Update 5/27/2004: 27 May
2004 from Tim Horvath and Eric Meyer: Dear EverestNews.com, thanks to you for
all of the great work you are doing at EverestNews.com On May 26th, Eric Meyer
of Steamboat Springs, CO, Tim Horvath of Cherry Valley, NY, Tenzi Sherpa of
Rolwaling, Galu Sherpa of Taur, and Tenzing Sherpa of Patale summitted Mt.
Everest via the Tibet- Northeast Ridge. After leaving ABC on the 24th we
reached 7600m. The next day we fought high winds to reach 8300m after five and
a half hours. On the morning of the 26th the winds were still 25-35 mph with
temps 10-15 below F, but we were lucky because the skies were clear. At 4:30
AM we left for the summit. After a cold start we arrived at the summit at
12:08 PM with no other parties on the route that day. After 20 minutes on the
summit we made the 8000 foot descent back to ABC. Congratulations to Eric and
Tim, and we wish the best of luck to our current summit attempters: Tim
Spears, Arnold Coster and Felix Berg, from Daniel Mazur and all of us at
