 Alpine Ascents Cho Oyu Autumn 2006: Preparation and Anticipation


Preparation and Anticipation; Friends, family and loved ones,

Ours was a day of anticipation as we prepared ourselves for the challenge ahead of us. We packed 5 days of food, organize our personal gear and built red blood cells. Even though we are a small team and were not the first team to the mountain, our Sherpas are leading the charge breaking trail and fixing the route to the summit plateau. Many of the teams that were waffling have now decided to give it a go……unfortunately it looks like there could be heavy traffic on the route if they all go at the same time. An Italian just flew down to ABC from camp II using his paraglider.

If all goes well, we should return to Advanced Base Camp around the 3rd of October. This is later than we originally planned but we need to be flexible due to weather conditions. Now we need a week of reasonable weather. Please keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned.
