Dhaulagiri Expedition 2002

May 13, 2002 - I received a message from Robert on Saturday from Camp 2. He recapped their summit attempt stating they were a couple of hours from the summit. However, high winds, a late departure for the summit, and snow conditions prevented them from attaining the summit. In his message, he stated twice with emphasis that, "Dhaulagiri is a big, hard, technical mountain!" Robert has climbed many mountains in his career.

He mentioned there was talk of a second attempt. The climbers are strong, healthy, and happy with their summit attempt. There was word of potential frostbite according to his message, but he stated there is no sign of frostbite for any of the climbers. They will come home with all of their digits, intact and functional.

At this time, the group is back at base camp resting. They are making some tough decisions of whether to try again or head home to their families and friends. The Mountain Link Office
