Greg called in this morning to report that the weather around Cho Oyu has been pretty nasty lately. [Tropical Cyclone 3B slid north out of the Bay of Bengal and pumped moisture and wind into the Nepal Himalayas.] Greg reported that they have had snow and wind the last few days but the forecast is improving. The team is safe and sound at ABC and plans to do an acclimatization hike towards Camp 1 tomorrow and weather permitting the Sherpas will carry to C1.
A total of 8 other groups have rolled into ABC so far and several more are at Base Camp. We’re out in front so that’s good!
