Hello Serbia - are you awake tonight for your Everest climbers?

We haven't heard much about these guys, but tonight an email arrived - just in time for their final summit push:

"At 10.00 p.m. (local time) climbers from Vojvodina (Serbia) were starting the final push to Mount Everest north side summit."

"Vojvodinean climbers Goran Ferlan, Iso Planic, Andor Luhovic and Hoselito Bite started out from ABC (6.400 m) on May 26th. This was their third attempt, as bad weather had forced them down from 7000 meters on two previous attempts; May 14th and 21st."

"This push is the climbers last effort, as their climbing permit and visa are expiring. The men climbed to camp 3 (8300 m), expecting a window to open on May 29. Tonight, at 10.00 p.m. (local time) they have begun their final ascent to the top of Everest (8848 m)."

"God and the cold allowing, some of our boys (all four I hope) might reach the 'Roof of the World' while most of Serbia should still be sleeping. We are sending our greetings to all the people of Serbia; please save some of your warm dreams for the brave boys which are going to the stars."

Mico Jovovic, leader of Vojvodinean expedition "Everest 2005"
