2.) Dan Mazur hired Arnold Coster to help with some of his trips. He summited both Everest North Side and Cho Oyu last year with Dan.

3.) The other Dutch plans are for the fall: A large Dutch team of people with Asthma will go with Rene de Bos to the North Side of Everest. Their goal is to reach the North Col on 7000 meters. For people with Asthma this must be at least as heavy as climbing to the summit without Asthma. From the North Col you have the best view on the entire route to the summit. It is actually a great place, if the weather is nice. 

4.) A small Dutch team will go the Changabang (6864m) in the Garhwal Himalaya in India to climb the north face.  The very experienced climbers are Andreas Amons, Mike van Berkel, Cas van de Gevel en Melvin Redeker. Last year they climbed a new route on Thalay Sagar.
