Hello, This is Gerfried Goeschl from Austria! On 5/3/2002 two brothers Rainer Wolfgang Goeschl and Gerfried Goeschl reached the Summit of Cho Oyu. We started from Camp 2 (7100m) 0:45 Nepali time, -30 degrees Celsius. There was bad weather and high winds. We reached the real Summit at 9:05 Nepali time. It was very, very cold. We were the second group to summit Cho Oyu. The first group was Swiss Rupert Heider with two Sherpas on 24.04.2002. On our summit day, one and a half hour later one Korean (Chung Jang Keun) and two Sherpas, one was named Pem Tensi Sherpa) reached the Summit. We were climbing without help of Sherpas and supplimental Oxygen. We were three members of Styria, Austria expedition.
