UP Mountaineers on Everest BC

The major TV networks continues to drum up interest in the Everest Team and Romeo "Romi" Garduce. As a member of the UP Mountaineers, there's a certain pride in knowing that several of our members are part of this event.

I'm posting a couple of old snapshots that I've taken of them. :)

Romi Garduce on The North Face 2004 Adventure Race. Romi is supported by GMA 7, and is attempting to summit Everest this May.
