A Physical and Spiritual Journey to the Himalayas
Lorenzo Gariano

This event took place on 19th November 2003 at 8:00pm (20:00 GMT)

Lorenzo took part in the Adventures International expedition to Everest, organized by the well known and experienced climber Scott Woolums. This evening he will present a slide/talk show describing his adventure.

Following the success of the live web casts from Lorenzo's Matterhorn climb in 2002, it was hoped that this climb would be followed with as much interest and enthusiasm - certainly the world's media took a keen interest. Lorenzo did not attempt the summit of Everest itself this time, the cost is just too great to go that extra 1000 metres - tens of thousands of pounds! He participated in the acclimatization climbs, involving repeated climbs to camp 4 and back and ascended the summit of nearby Lhotse, the world's fourth highest peak. This is still an incredibly tough climb to an impressive height of 8511 metres, in the sort of inhospitable conditions only Everest can throw at you!

We hope you enjoy hearing about Lorenzo's adventures.

To tune in to the webcast, you will require at least Apple QuickTime 5.0.4 or later. The slide show will additionally require the Shockwave plugin, version 8.5 or later.
