UK Royal Navy Everest summit
02:26 a.m. EDT May 22, 2003
At 0931 hrs local time, WO2 Dave Pearce (RM) and Chrring Dorje Sherpa summited Everest from the North. Capt. Richard Cantrill (RM) who was also going for the summit turned around 3 hrs away because of frostbite to his fingers.

The Royal Navy team was earlier planning to do a live video cast from the summit, however their main technology member Jay Baxter was called to duty in the Iraq war, and so the live video project had to be cancelled.
