Phoenix, Arizona, summit picture from Cho Oyu, summitted on Sunday
September 25, 2005 at about 9 a.m. (as a member of the IMG team). It is a
great picture with a clear view of Everest and Lhotse. It was a wonderful
climb and perfect summit day for pictures!
Earlier Update is below...
Ang Jangbu reports from ABC that
the IMG team left Camp 3 about 1:30 am and was successful in reaching the
summit of Cho Oyu this morning Sunday September 25 at approximately 9am Nepal
time. All members reached the top within about 10 minutes of each other. The
descent was accomplished smoothly and all members returned to Camp 2 by about
3 pm. The team was able to pull down Camp 3 today on their descent from the
summit, and tomorrow the Sherpas will finish pulling down Camp 1 and 2. By
tomorrow evening all members will be back to ABC. Yaks have been ordered for
the 27th. By all accounts everyone is doing fine. We’ll look forward to
getting their personal stories of the climb when they get back to ABC.
Congratulations to Justin, Rob, Garry, Jack, Rich, Phubu, Danuru, and Phunuru!
