Ang Jangbu reports that the Tibet Trekkers moved today up from Tingri to Rongbuk monastery…in the footsteps of George Mallory and the old British climbers. They are staying tonight at a small hotel near the monastery and tomorrow they take a hike up above the Base Camp. The weather is pretty good and they had nice views of the North Face.
Meanwhile, back on Cho Oyu, Mike Hamill reports that the IMG climbers and sherpas are all back at ABC after climbing up to the Ice Cliff. Their plan is to take a couple rest days now, before heading back up on the Camp 2 rotation.
