Hi Jake Just want to wish you and your team mates the very best on your Everest expedition. I hope you all reach your goal and arrive home safe and well. I will be following the dispatches! Colin Mount Everest The British Story
Great video Jake! Happy Birthday Elizabeth! Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
That was a couple of expensive biscuits you ate then! Hope you enjoyed them. Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
Walter was one of the best during his climbing years. I am sure he will be sadly missed by many. Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
I will look forward to the film! I have read the book 'I'll Call You in Kathmandu: The Elizabeth Hawley Story by Bernadette McDonald' and it was an excellent read on a very intelligent lady. Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
I am sure Martina will be back to give it another shot one day. Martina has had treatment for Cancer recently, would that of been a disadvantage to her combined with the altitude? Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
Love this photograph! Its even better now that you have marked the main routes on it, thanks Jake. Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
I have mixed feelings about this. I feel that this young boy is being dragged into it because his father is a famous climber who thinks the 'record' should belong to his country. Has this boy had his chance to say anything? Maybe he dosent really want to climb Everest but is doing so because of all the pressure etc. I think its great that many youngesters are getting out and about more rather than sitting at home watching TV or playing computer games. But is Mount Everest really a good place for them to be? I have no kids but if I did, even with my love and fascination I have for Everest and its climbers, I would not let him any higher than base camp!

Hi Jake Thank you for posting these great photographs of Tibet, fascinating to look at. Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
Very cool jacket but a little out of my price range. I wonder how many would opt to try it out on a 8000m mountain today! Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
I love your 'Interactive North East Ridge' photograph Jake, its excellent to be able to zoom in and see it in more detail. Colin Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
Like you say Jake, Professor G.W.K Moore article does not really prove anything, but its always interesting to read theories from others on this subject. Mount Everest The British Story http://www.everest1953.co.uk
