Focus Expedition: Update 10/11/2001: Marco Chianttore on the Focus Expedition reached the Summit of Cho Oyu in late September. Several strong climbers from Slovenia including Viki Groselj are on this expedition.

3.) Windhorse Cho Oyu Expedition 2001

4.) Arun Treks & Expeditions Cho Oyu 2001 Expedition

5.) Himalaya Trekking Cho Oyu 2001 Expedition

6.) FOCUS WORLD EXPEDITIONS: One team for spring season, is composed by Italian climbers led by Gianni Rusconi.  Start from Italy on 7th April 2001. Another two teams will be there in the fall season, start 28th august 2001. The first one is composed by 7 members and led by Ezio Berti, the second one by 6 members. All of them will attempt the normal route. 

Fausto De Stefani was part of this Expedition. Fausto De Stefani is currently working on building a school in Nepal at Kirtipur. Kirtipur is a very poor part of Kathmandu. Fausto De Stefani has been credited with 13 summit of the 14 8000 meter peaks. On Lhotse he reached a very high point possibly the Summit, but historians have not given him the credit because he summited in a snow storm and another climber said the tracks stopped short of the summit. Then again were they filled in by the snow? He seem to have no interest in going back. Sergio Martini did go back to end the doubt.

7.) Kari Kobler: breaking news THE FIRST 8000m SUMMIT THIS SEASON? Kari and his 12 member expedition from Switzerland managed on the 11th of April to put several people on the Summit.

More details from Kari, " The following Member reach from camp II and III directly, the Maintop of Cho Oyu.  On Shisha we dry also to reach the Maintop!"
