Ochoa checks in with his plans for 2004 and more!
This is Iñaki Ochoa from Spain.
Today I presented to the press in Pamplona ,Spain my next project. It is about
all 14 8000, and we start tomorrow for Nepal. We will try Makalu first, then
head for Pakistan to try k2 again. My sponsors for this 3 -4 year project are
LORPEN and DIARIO DE NAVARRA....After Makalu, k2, Kangchenjunga, Dhaulagiri,
Manaslu, Annapurna and Shishapangma will follow.
For now, in Makalu I will be
with Guggemos, Iván Vallejo (Ecuador), and Ricardo Valencia, Alex Chicon and
myself and others. So, I hope all is ok and you can inform about our progress
in the hills. cheers for now, Iñaki
