  Autumn 2003: International Mountain Guides 8000 meter Coverage

Dispatch 12

Cho Oyu Expedition Time

Dispatch 12: Chris 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.
