  Tibet Team Summiting in Stages

22 May 2013 -

This morning our first members summited. Urs & Lakpha Sherpa and David Roeske & Lakpha Nuru Sherpa summit around 10am Chinese time this morning.

Unfortunately Jerry & Palden Sherpa turned around at 1am Chinese time. It was a very windy day and not an easy summit. Urs, David, Lakpha and Lakpha Nuru are resting in camp 2 at 7800m and will descend to ABC tomorrow. Jerry and Palden descended to the North Col and they will be back in ABC tomorrow also.

The 2nd team (9 members & 9 Sherpa) are in Camp 3 and will push for the summit tonight. Bo is trying to summit from camp 2 and will leave tonight also.

I hope tomorrow I have more good news!

21 May 2013 -

Our first summit team reached camp 3 at 8300m in good time. Urs & Lakpha Sherpa, Jerry & Palden Sherpa, David Roeske & Lakpha Nuru Sherpa are resting at the moment to get ready for their summit attempt tonight. Depending on conditions they probably will set off at 11pm Chinese time and are hoping to summit on the 22nd in the morning.

The rest of the team is in Camp 2 at 7800m, spending the night and will climb to Camp 3 the following day. Their plan is to summit on the 23rd. Also this team is doing well and all members reached the camp in reasonable time.

So I hope I can call in the first summits tomorrow morning, stay tuned.
