Cesare Maestri, Italian famous climber, aged 74: Cho Oyu 2002

Cesare Maestri, Italian famous climber, aged 74, is trying the Shishapangma top right now.  His expedition "A 8000 for Peace" is meant to reach the top and put a multicoloured "peace" flag, to testify the importance of alpinism in world peace, for the 2002 Year of the Mountains. Cesare Maestri, along with top Italian climbers Sergio Martini and Fausto De Stefani, reached base camp last week and started his acclimatation work. Unfortunately, Cesare Maestri suffered for a lungs irritation on Saturday Sept. 21th, while taking a fast trek at 5.000 meter altitude. He had to turn back and recover at base camp. But his doctor said yesterday there is no risk of edema, and Maestri will go on in few days after some rest. From: Gigi Zoppello, journalist, Italy

Update 9/24/2002: Cesare Maestri, famous Italian climber, aged 74, has quit his attempt to reach the top of Shishapangma. Maestri had been stopped by his doctor, after an attack of mountain sickness last  Saturday, and suffered for lungs irritation on his way back from advanced base camp al 5.600 meter altitude. "If he goes on - doctor said today - he's risking edema". Maestri wanted to climb the Himalayan top to put a peace flag on it, in the 2002 Year of the Mountains. Maestri is back at base camp and about to start his way back to Kathmandu. His mates Sergio Martini and Giorgio Nicolodi - both from Trento, Italy - will attempt Shishapangma anyway, and are carrying the Maestri's flag, says local Italian newspaper "Corriere delle Alpi". from: Gigi Zoppello, journalist, Trento - Italy
