In 2009, bolts were put in the replica breitling 1884 Hercules Series watches Yellow Band to increase speed and improve safety. Any other plans to accommodate the crowds and remove bottlenecks for 2010?The Yellow Band bolts replaced some nasty old pitons that had been used up there for fixed rope anchors, so that was a big improvement, with both up and down ropes installed.For 2010 I just bought 10,000 meters of fixed rope on behalf of a consortium of outfitters.
Russell deserves credit for getting the ball rolling on this and we now have most of the western outfitters on board. The challenge now is to get the replica breitling 50th Anniversary watches Kathmandu operators on board too, but with the support of Ang Jangbu, Dawa Stephen, Tamding, and other key players I think that well hit the tipping point soon on this. Again, this will be a big improvement.We figure that for $100 per western climber we can fix high quality rope, purchase the hardware and oxygen for the fixing team, and pay the sherpas who work so hard up high to get the rope in. Well have an uprope and downrope in all the bottleneck places for smoother traffic in both directions. It should really help to make the route safer for both the Sherpas and climbers.Q: Any other thoughts on Everest this spring?
I think everyone is getting the message that it is in our replica breitling Avenger Titanium watches interest to work together. For 2010 we will be trying to get more teams to haul their poop down from Camp 2. Everest is looking cleaner and cleaner every year, it is definitely improving.Prospective Everest climbers need to be asking their outfitters about how they deal with their waste. Also, how they staff and pay their Sherpas teams.
