Everest Team Video On The Summit Of Gokyo Ri

**updated Tuesday, April 17

We finally have video footage of the Philippine All Women Everest Team in action.

Early last week, the team climbed a 5,000+ meter peak in the Everest Region called Gokyo Ri. This was a training climb to allow the womens' bodies to get used to the thin air at high altitude. According to the team physician, Dr. Ted Esguerra, the women performed extremely well. While in an e-mail, team member Noelle Wenceslao said the climb up Gokyo Ri boosted their morale, as the perfect weather enabled them to see Mt. Everest in its full glory.

Now we have the video showing that the women were indeed in top shape and in high spirits. Here's a quick edit of some clips. Will post more in the next few days.

Music: Adiemus from The Official Athens 2004 Classical Album
