Sherpas Assigned

May 4, 2013

We are still sitting around waiting for good weather. This morning I went for a scramble up the mountain next to camp and made it to 18,200' (1,200' above camp). It took me 55 minutes which was quite fast so I am pleased with my acclimatizing.

The weather is supposed to remain windy for another week or more.

Phil has assigned each of us our Sherpa for the summit push.  I will be climbing with Sangee Sherpa.  He pronounces it "Sanghee".  He is the strongest Sherpa on the team, is probably in his mid-forties, is super friendly and happy-go-lucky.  I like him a lot and am very pleased with the assignment.


  1. Nebraska Superman!
    Wish you well for your climbs above ABC. Say a warm Namaste to Sanghee, Kami and the other Sherpa friends!
    And Phil...

    1. Robert...fantastic on the acclimatization and most importantly stay well. Sange sounds super and I am sure you will both be on the top soon...getting close and get fired up when they "ring the bell" to head to the top.

  2. Robert: the ProActive Spinning class is cheering you on! Be safe and be strong!
