In the 50th anniversary year of the first ascent of Everest, Lorenzo Gariano (who looks after the plants around KMi) is to take part in an Adventures International expedition to the famous peak. Lorenzo will not be attempting the summit this time as the cost is simply too great, but will be participating in the acclimatization climbs, which involve climbing to camp 4 (7986m) and back a number of times. Using KMi's Xtreme webcasting technology, Lorenzo will record a number of audio reports onto our server using a satellite phone. This particular expedition will see the most advanced communications technology ever on the mountain.
