2005 Cho Oyu climbing team, led by Justin Merle and including Robert Hottentot,
Jack Sutton and Gary Giss all pulled into Camp 2 in reasonably good timing.
The team spent last night at Camp 1 and then woke up Friday morning, took a
look at the sky, the forecast and each other and said "We climb!" So they'll
drink some water, eat some food and rest at Camp 2 and then plan an early
start to the summit on Saturday morning. Jangbu will remain at Advance Base
Camp in support and will keep us informed of their progress. We'll let you
know how it goes when we hear more from Jangbu!
