May 2, 2005 12: 46 EST
Summit pushes are on all over Himalaya! Dhaulagiri has climbers wrestling its slopes just now, and word reached ExWeb this morning about a push on Shisha.

Before he races over to Everest for a no 02 attempt, Gerfried will try to summit Shisha with his team of eleven climbers. Last week, Gerfried Göschl, Guenther Unterberger and Martin Nuess reached the summit of the 7068m high Jebo Kangijale Peak, and now time has come for the main target of this expedition.

The note arrived this morning:

"On May 1st, the entire team climbed up to Camp I, and then all members except Helga Schubert continued up to Camp II (7080m). Now they will 'refuel' for tomorrow, and drink lots of liquids before they start the final climb to the summit tomorrow morning at 2:00 a.m.!

Gerfried Göschl (32) was born in Styria, Austria. He is a member of Alpine Rescue Team Gesaeuse. He has summited Cho Oyu, Muztagh Ata (7546m), Aconcagua, and G2.

Northland Professional expedition consists in Austrian Hubert Rieger (31) and Günther Unterberger (38) – both with previous experience in the Alps and South American Andes.

Other members of the Shisha Pangma Expedition are: Georg Wenzl (26) and Hans Wenzl (34) from Austria; Dr. Andrea Lakatos (39), Dr. Helga Schubert (44), Thomas Scherzer (25), Martin Nuess (30), and Norbert Linz (37) from Germany; and Elio Schlijen (33) from Holland.
