NEW! My Everest Pictures

Hi My name is Yury Pritzker and on May 21 2009 at 4:30 am, I summited Mt. Everest.

I would like to thank my family and all my sponsors and friends for their support and trust.

...At 4:15 am we were 100 horizontal meters away from the summit, which was visible in the beam of my head light. There was a big rock on the side of the trail and a large hole around it that allowed us to hide from the wind that we experienced from the time we reached the South Summit. We decided to spend some time behind the rock and wait for the sun to come up.

At 4:30 we started climbing the last 100 m up. It was an easy climb. Finally we were on the top of the highest mountain on the Earth, watching the sun rise. What else anyone can dream of?
