 David Lim: ASCENT 8000

Singaporean mountaineer David Lim, who was rendered partially disabled by Guillain-Barre Syndrome after leading the 1st Singapore Mt Everest Expedition in 1998, is making a bid to do a 'double' - climbing both Shishapangma and Cho Oyu without bottled oxygen this spring. The expedition, called ASCENT 8000 is aimed at pushing Singapore's  mountaineering frontiers as well as proving that being disabled does not mean being 'unable'. 
Introduction...

April 17, 2002: Hi everyone. After 16 days on the march, we're back in Kathmandu; having summitted Mera Peak in deep snow and poor conditions on April 2nd; taking six hours from high camp to the summit. 


Hi, EverestNews.com, This email is brought to you by the world's smallest and lightest satellite telephone courtesy of Asian Cellular Satellite (ACeS). The weather's turned somewhat. Very windy last night and this morning. A bitterly cold breeze is cutting through basecamp. The setting is spectacular with full-on views of Shishapangma. 


April 27, 2002: ABC has been lashed with winds up to 35km/h for the past 2 days plus a bunch of snow. The weather forecasts from Met Service Singapore predict similar weather until tomorrow. It's been pretty miserable these past two days here but better than being up high on the mountain. We got off the high camps just in time... Click for the full dispatch.


I'm now in Cho Oyu ABC waiting for a suitable break in the weather and then MB Tamang and I will go for it alpine style over 4 days from ABC. Good bet we will shoot for a summit day on the 18th May.... Click for the full dispatch.
