  Alpine Ascents Cho Oyu 2005: Summits!


Update: September 21 Evening Camp II
    
Dave just called into the office again. He wanted to let everyone know that the team is safely back to Camp II. Lakpa, Tshering and himself just finished cooking up dinner and everyone is tucked away in their sleeping bags for a well deserved rest.

They will try and send a cybercast tomorrow from Camp II or will send one when they return to ABC.

Thanks for your support.

September 21 Camp III 2:30PM Nepal time
    
Dear family and friends, we just heard from the Cho-Oyu summit team. They are back down to Camp III after a successful summit bid earlier today. The team is packing up Camp III and will continue to descend to Camp II. They will rest at Camp II for the night and should send in a cybercast in the next 12-24 hours. The team members are all safe and doing well and want to thank everyone watching for their support.

They'll be in touch soon from Camp II.

All our best and congratulations again to Mike, Kevin, Suzanne, Tony, Dave, Lakpa and Tshering.

To all family and friends who have been watching the 2005 Cho-Oyu Expedition cybercasts. We have just received word from the team that they are standing on the summit of Cho-Oyu.

Congratulations to Kevin, Mike, Suzanne, Tony, Lakpa, Tshering and Dave on a great job. We will look forward to their next message.

All our best,
