Hi, this is Scott Patch with a Summit Climb update on our Spring 2013 Cho Oyu
expedition. Today the entire team, 3 climbers, 3 Sherpas and myself all
successfully made the summit today. It was a beautiful day to summit.
We are all now at Camp 2, and will make our way to advanced base camp (ABC)
tomorrow. We’re excited, with a sense of accomplishment and also looking
forward to a good night’s rest.
Thanks for following our dispatches. Take care.
Scott Patch, expedition leader
