 Alpine Ascents International Cho-Oyu Cybercast, Tibet (26,906ft/8,201m)

10/4/01  12:13pm, Cho-Oyu Advanced Base Camp, Tibet

Hello everyone this is Ruth at Alpine Ascents' Advanced Base Camp on Cho-Oyu in Tibet.  I'm reporting the last days events.  Yesterday the climbers all went to Camp II, it was a very windy difficult day, they got there about four or five o'clock exhausted but had a good night. 

I talked to Todd this morning, they had a very ferocious wind blowing.  When I look at the mountain every half hour it changes from very thick clouds blowing over to snow.  We did have a lot of deep snow between II and III.  They are holding tight at II for now, they are going to check in every two hours.  They had hoped to go to III today and leave for the summit tonight, but we'll see what the weather lets us do.

Everyone here at Advanced Base Camp is well.  The weather has definitely changed, it's now snowing down here, and everyone is pretty much in their tents.  Advanced Base Camp I don't want to say is boring, but I spent all morning two days ago looking for Mingma's tooth.  Mingma is one of the Sherpas who is helping us climb this mountain, and he was yelling at a Tibetan the other morning and his gold tooth fell out of his mouth into the rocks and I excavated for it all morning with no success.  I don't want to say it's boring here but you do have to find things to entertain yourself.  That's all for now and I will report again in 24 hours on the progress up the mountain.  Good luck to everyone and we hope that we have a weekend of opportunity on the way.
