Global Extremes press release
18:02 p.m. EDT May 30, 2003
In a press release sent to ExplorersWeb by OLN, the expeditionís summit was confirmed. They made it to the top from their high camp at 8300m, in a very quick time of 6 Ĺ hours.

Excerpt from the press release:

OLN viewers will share in the excitement by watching the historic summit attempt in its entirety on Sunday, June 1, from 7:00 PM to 11:00 PM ET / 8:00 PM to Midnight PT.

Reporting from Base Camp on Mt. Everest at 17,060 feet, will be Global Extremes host Craig Hummer, and professional climber Conrad Anker, who discovered the body of George Mallory on Everest in 1999. Going to 29,035 feet, the top of Mt. Everest, a specially trained camera crew covers the complete summit attempt by the Global Extremes Team.

The summit attempt, originally planned as a live broadcast, was recorded live and will be broadcast via satellite from Katmandu, due to the loss of the satellite window from the mountain.

The coverage, sponsored by the all-new 2003 Toyota 4Runner, will be hosted live from OLNís studio in Norwalk, Conn., by professional sportscaster Kirsten Gum.
