This just in: 
Michael, DaNgima, and Lhapka have reached the summit of Mt. Everest!  These are among the first group of climbers to reach the summit this year!  This is an incredible feat, without new fixed ropes in place, in high winds, cold temperatures and uncertain weather!
It was confirmed via radio, 15 people have reached the summit today!  The Arun sherpas are extremely proud that 6 of the successful climbers are from Arun Trekking.  Michael from Seattle, our two Sherpas, Lhapka and DaNgima, Rosa from Spain and her two Sherpas made the summit at 10:40 AM, Nepalese time, today May 21st, 2005.
We are all proud and excited about their accomplishment.  We understand that when reaching the summit, the climb is half over.  Our thoughts and prayers are with them for a safe, quick and uneventful descent.  
Team Seattle
