The climbing Legend Norbert
Joos summited Makalu in 2002 for his 11th 8000 meter
peak. In 2004, he plans to get number 12! Lhotse.
Norbert and 4 friends are going to Lhotse this spring to
attempt the west face. He is leaving Switzerland on April 11th and should
arrive in Namche on 14th. After one day of acclimatisation they hope to arrive
basecamp on 18th of April. They will have only their cook at bc and no sherpa
support and no oxygen!
