In March 2006, Paul Adler and Fiona Adler left for their attempt to climb Mount Everest. 

We posted live updates here throughout our climb, as well as during the final stages of our preparation.  We hope that this helped our friends, family and other interested parties to experience the adventure with us along the way.

Our current projects are www.womo.com.au, www.myeverest.com and www.powerdiary.com.au

On the plane home we heard a huge bang and found that a passenger had decided to use a life jacket as a headrest!
