Mike just called from ABC after a successful rotation to Camp 1 on Cho Oyu. One night at over 6000 meters is enough for the first trip up the mountain. They arrived at Camp 1 just after lunch and had all afternoon to acclimatize and look at the route above. After a cool night, the Team went downhill just after breakfast and was back at ABC by lunchtime.
With the first rotation in the books, the team can evaluate the mountain and their schedule. The forecast is calling for a little bit of precipitation over the next couple days. We are getting stronger and more acclimatized every day!
