Dhaulagiri Expedition 2002

Monday May 20, 2002 – Andy Mondry and Mike “Birthday Boy” Lindaas

Happy Birthday to Mike Lindaas! Today is his 34th birthday!

The group spent Sunday, May 19, climbing to Camp 3. They made it there after 7 hours of hard climbing in good to patchy weather. They spent today, Lindy’s birthday, snuggled in sleeping bags, protected within the walls of their tents at Camp 3 on Dhaulagiri in Nepal. What a great birthday present!

Overall, the weather is windy, snowy and blowing! If there is a weather window on Tuesday morning (May 21) to make their move to Camp 4, they are going to take it. If not, they will retreat to Camp 2. They will be making big decisions tomorrow whether to stay or go higher. In Andy’s message you could hear the disappointment in his voice when he said, “I think the monsoon is here. We may go down tomorrow.”

Everyone is strong and healthy. They are enjoying the climbing and the great views of the Himalayas (when there is no inclement weather).
