 Lhotse 2001:  Gary Pfisterer and the International Expedition

Update May 25th: Email from Gary. The team is leaving base camp.  They should be back in Kathmandu on the 30th at which time he will get in contact again. Thomas Moores was helicoptered out yesterday. the other remaining team members are fine but evidently did not get a summit [not confirmed] shot due to the rescue of Tom.

Tom Moore, we believe did reach the Summit of Lhotse [not yet confirmed] but had some problems coming down. There are at least two different versions of Tom's "rescue" both completely different ! Therefore, we have held that story... 

According to our Polish sources Tom is Ok with some frostbite...

We will update this story later when we can....

Update May 19th: Gary, "On the hill virtually everyone is talking about going up tomorrow.  Thankfully we are a small expedition at this point so we should be able to sort out some porterage for the way out without serious difficulty.  I suspect that the next five days will tell the story. We are heading up tomorrow so this will be the last contact until we are out of base camp. We have heard there has been some success on other hills... "

"As everyone will be moving, the next contact will be when we get back to Kathmandu by the end of the month.  As always, Love to friends and family- we will see you soon."  Cheers, Gary.
