Everest - Dispatches

Julian in red suit stands at the summit mark of Mt Everest with team member Dale Darling from USA, in orange suit. Julian spent nearly thirty minutes on the summit and awaited most of his fellow team members. Conditions did not allow him to remain there until the fourth kiwi made it to the top. Fingers froze if ungloved for more than two minutes so photography was not easy.

Julian, in red 'down suit', approaching the "second step" three to four hundred metres below the summit. The time is 0430. The sun is just rising and has barely reached the north side up which they are proceeding. The climbers had left Camp 4 just after midnight in very cold and windy conditions.
