  Ray Yeritsian: Cho Oyu 2005


Update 10/5/2005: Ray called: From ABC Cho Oyu  October 5, 2005: Ray is reporting that two Austrian climbers accompanied him on his way to the Summit. From what I understood on the phone, only one of the trio reached the summit, and it wasn't Ray. However, Ray sounded happy and healthy. He will be coming down to Katmandu in the next few days.  He promised to give a full report at that time. He asked me to let everyone know just how greatly he appreciates their interest and support.

Update 9/29/2005: Ray Yeritsian Cho Oyu 2005

September 29, 2005 via satellite phone: Ray is in good health and spirits. Over the last five days he has climbed to Camp 2 twice and spent one night there. He is back at Base Camp to rest for two days. He plans to make an attempt for the Summit in three to five days. We wish him the best of luck.

Hi everybody, checking in from Kathmandu...arrived here yesterday. The word is, there are quite a few expeditions on Cho Oyu this Fall, some of them are already at Base Camp...will be hard to find a good spot for a tent... Real Estate business must be booming there... :-)

...will be leaving for Tibet tomorrow morning, hoping to cross the border and spend the night in Zangmu (the first city across the border).  Later, Ray Yeritsian. 09.07.05

 

Nyalam, Tibet. 09.10.05: Arrived here yesterday from Zhangmu. Elevation is about 12,000 ft. We had some rain in Zhangmu...locals told me, the end of the monsoon season is a little late this year. No rain in Nyalam so far. Planning to leave for Tingri (elevation 14,000 ft). Tingri will be the last village on my way to Base Camp. Next update in 7-8 days from Advanced Base Camp, hopefully. Later, Ray Yeritsian.
