My name is Chris Stangl and I am from Austria. As you may
remember I speedclimbed Everest last year (May 25th 2006) in 16h 42 minutes
from Northside ABC/6.400m to summit without O2.
Few days ago I speedclimbed Cho Oyu in 15hours 6 minutes from Basecamp to
I arrived at Basecamp at September 18th. joining an international group run by
Asian Trekking. One of the member was also the russian senior climber Boris
Korshunov. Due to general bad weather this season I could spend only three
nights at camp 1/ 6.400m for acclimatisation before my summit attack starting
at September 30th/ 05:00pm.
I climbed continously the entire night and reached the summit at 08:06am
Oktober 1st. The temperature during night time was very pleasant and at the
vast summit plateau was nearly no wind- just perfect!
