  Autumn 2003: International Mountain Guides 8000 meter Coverage

Dispatch 11


Cho Oyu Expedition Time

Dispatch 11: We received a call last night from Ken Goodwin in Kathmandu to say that he, Nacho, and Bill had safely made it back to town.  We also heard from co-leader Mike Hamill who reported that the team is wrapping up their rest days at ABC and is preparing to head back up on their summit bid.

Joining Mike, co-leader Chris Booher and the Sherpas for the summit bid will be guides Justin Merle, Garrett Madison, and climbers Adam Christofferson, Peter Ford, James Harter, Mark Weinberg, Lanta Olito, Josef Stanzel, and Lindon Seed.  We'll keep you posted on how their plans are progressing!
