  Autumn 2003: International Mountain Guides 8000 meter Coverage

Dispatch Five


Current Expedition Time

Dispatch Five Nepal Time, 5:30 pm September 5th:  I spoke on the sat phone to Ang Jangbu and Mike Hamill a few minutes ago and they report that today the team reached Advanced Base Camp, at about 18,500 feet.  They had a good two day hike up from Base Camp with the yaks, and everyone was doing well.  They had spent one night on the way up at "Interim Camp" which is located along the lateral moraine of the Gyabrag Glacier, about 17,500 feet.

The Sherpas who had gone ahead did a nice job to get ABC camp set up for them. Mike and Jangbu report that they had snowfall this afternoon, and that the mountain looked pretty white (normal for this time of year).
