These pictures are amazing so I thought everyone would enjoy this entry but it’s mostly to say congrats to Kevin and Stephen for summitting another mountain…again. Stephen has blogged about climbing here and Everest here and as for Kevin – he is still blogless. However, since I was guilted into blogging by Clemens, I’m going to pass on the guilt to Kevin…
But a HUGE CONGRATS is definitely due!
The rest of this message is really from Kevin – with a bit of his climbing history (and pictures) as well.
Bagged Rainier yesterday and brought the new SQL Mobile banner to the top! Below is the true summit of Mt. Rainer (14.4ft) with Mt. Adams, Mt. Baker and Mt. St. Helens in the background.
In front of Denali (Mt. McKinley) at base camp!
Kevin and Dennis Comfort at Everest Base Camp (17.5k ft) with Khumbu Ice Fall (far left) and Nuptse peak (far right) in the back ground. Everest is hidden behind Nuptse peak.
Kevin with Banner at Kala Patthar. Mt Everest is peak on the left. Nuptse is peak to the right.
Kevin at the REAL top of Kala Patthar (not some whimpy second peak) at 18.2k FT! Pumo Ri peak is to the right of him.
Altimeter reading at peak top of Kala Patthar..
