I want it more than the others!
01:09 a.m. EDT May 24, 2003
Tryntje Young, 40, a California paramedic firefighter, was eliminated from Global Extremes and her dream - Mount Everest. In an interview she said, "I think I would be great for the team, and I think I could make it. I have dreamt of Everest since I was 11 or 12 years old, but I don't want to say that I want it more than the others - they probably want it just as much as I do". In the end of the interview however she laughed: "Actually I do think I want it more then the others!".

Well Tryntje, obviously you did! Tryntje summited yesterday, on her own, in another expedition. This mystery woman is just another addition to the thrill of Global Extreme. Earlier this season the "ghost climber" tried to make an illegal crossing between China and Nepal climbing over the Lho La pass to meet up with his team. MountEverest.net have tracked him down. Check story coming up.

Tryntje Young is the 12th American women to summit Everest
