IMG Cho Oyu Expedition Autumn 2002

Update #6 September 12, 2002

Ben Marshall reports that all is well and that everyone is healthy and doing fine.  On the 10th the guided group and the North Face group headed up to Camp 1, spent the night, climbed partway to Camp 2 the next day, and then descended to ABC.  On the 11th the non guided climbers headed to Camp 1 to do the same thing.  Today they climbed up towards Camp 2 for acclimatization, and now are on their way back down to ABC for some R and R.   The climbers will all take a couple days rest, then head back up to Camp 1 and Camp 2 for further acclimatization.  The trekkers are now on their way back to Kathmandu after going to Everest Base Camp and Rongbuk Monastery.  Also heading back to Kathmandu is David Pierce Jones, who decided to go home early. 

That is the latest from Cho Oyu!
