Breaking News: Torch to Summit Everest Today?

Earlier today, reported an attempt by the Chinese to summit yesterday. Current unconfirmed reports indicate that the Olympic Torch is on its way to the summit right now with up to 19 mountaineers. They expect to make the top by 10 or 11 AM.

With the media blackout on the mountain, it is very difficult to confirm whether or not this report is accurate. We will do our best to get you all the latest details in tomorrow's blog, "Climbing News from Here and Abroad."
