Update 11: The climb to
Fugro camp 2 at 7080 m was extremely strenuous. It took the team 7 hours to
reach the camp. The ongoing process of acclimatization doesn't come easy.
Greg, Joost and Ang Pemba spent the night in the camp at 7080 m. Apart from
subzero temperatures (-22 degrees in the tent!), low air pressure (423 hPa)
and resulting altitude issues (slight headaches, lack of appetite, breatheless
awakenings, etc) the night went relatively easy. The next morning the first
skitracks were printed above 7000 m on the Cho Oyu. What a fantastic feeling!
Greg, Joost and Ang Pemba are
now back in Basecamp after a quick descent. Pemba and Pasang will spend
another night on the mountain, attempting to reach Vicks camp 3 at about 7400
m. However, it's snowing heavily at the moment. Bad weather may delay the
progress towards the summit.
