I have just spoken to
Henry who tells me that his team are now back at Cho Oyo ABC and that he
had 10 people on the summit. Sue
Some news from Cho Oyo.
Henry's team had the first western summiter. John Pomfrey, an English rugby
player, summited on September 18th, the same days as the Singaporeans. The
rest have just left for camp 1 for their summit bid. The weather isn't
brilliant right now, but it should be fine in a few days time. Best Wishes,
Sue Todd (Formerly Sue Harper, for those that don't know Sue and Henry got
married earlier this year.) Sue summited Everest in Spring 2004.

are really missing Ian Mackay, who was with us last year and we hoped would be
back again, but he is obviously still getting his breath back.....!
Most members of both climbing
teams have already been up through the icefall to camp 1 and spent a night
there. It snowed whilst we were up there and in the morning we saw some very
spectacular avalanches. They didn't reach us, but the wind from them
Camp 2 is now established and
the Sherpas are working hard stocking it. The kitchen will be up and running
in 2 days time and so we will all be making our way up there for further
acclimatisation and to enjoy a few days enjoying the splendid vistas of the
We will send a further
