Cho Oyu Expedition Time
Booher called last night from ABC to describe the events of yesterday. The
team had successfully reached Camp 2 on their summit bid, but Mark was forced
to descend after experiencing cerebral edema. He descended successfully with
Chris, Garrett and Sherpa Tashi to Camp 1.
From there Garret and
Tashi went back to Camp 2 and Chris went down to ABC with Mark, who is doing
much better now. Mark is now planning to head on down to Base Camp. Mike,
Justin, Garrett, Sherpas and climbers are now moving to Camp 3, with all
things "go" for a summit bid tomorrow. Chris is now moving back up to Camp 2
to support the summit climbers.
