Dave Hahn Reflects on his Tenth Everest Summit

By Dave Hahn

The media have acclaimed GreatOutdoors.com Everest correspondent Dave Hahn for becoming the first non-Sherpa to reach the summit of Everest for the tenth time, but Hahn himself discounts that milestone, saying the real hero is Apa Sherpa, who now has 18 trips to the top. But in his gripping Everest 2008 wrap up, Hahn does say he is proud of the three day struggle to reach the summit last month. In his final piece of the season, Hahn describes in detail how he and client Nicky Messner and Sherpas Samduk Dorjee and Phinjo Dorjee aborted their first summit attempt, spent another night and day in the Death Zone at the South Col at 26,000 feet, and then, dodging rockfall, ultimately reached the summit and descended safely.
