  SummitClimb Cho Oyu Expedition, Spring 2012



21 April -
Hi, this is Max Kausch writing the first dispatch for the SummitClimb Cho Oyu Spring Expedition 2012
Today our expedition officially starts. Two of our members already arrived. Mr Yasumichi Otsuka from Japan arrived on the 18th and Mr Mark van't Hof from Holland, arrived today. So far they really enjoyed Nepal.
Kathmandu is sunny and quite pleasant. Our staff is working on the logistics while our agent is working hard to get all the necessary paperwork before the trip. Over the years, SummitClimb has established a very good relationship with the chinese authorities. SummitClimb was allowed into Tibet even during the 2008 Olympic Games when only a handful of expeditions did! We are very happy with this and will continue keeping up our good relations with CTMA and other chinese authorities.
Today I had a meeting with Ms Elizabeth Hawley. She known as the 'himalayan record-keeper'. Ms Hawley has been keeping records of every single expedition who climbed any major nepali peaks since the 60s. We admire Ms Hawley's work and dedication very much
