  Inaki Ochoa de Olza reports in:  Advanced Base Camp of Cho Oyu


Advanced Base Camp of Cho Oyu, 21st September: 1) The climbers (the vizcaínos Alex and Javier Txikon and Igor Astondoa) that the last 17 the of September passed the night at Camp III (7.550 metros) are in the ABC since 18th. They are tired but in perfect conditions.

2.) During the next days, and in a unique and compact group again, we will try the summit of Cho Oyu depending of the conditions of the way, the weather and our strength.

Iñaki Ochoa de Olza, ABC of Cho Oyu.

Previous Update

Alex Txikon, Javier Txikon and Igor Astondoa, the three vizcainos climbers who were in the group of Iñaki Ochoa de Olza and don't listen the recommendations of the navarrese trying to make the summit of Cho Oyu alone and without the logical process of acclimatization, are coming down today 18th from 7.550 meters because physical problems, not very serious it seems, but without the condition even to begin the climb from 7.550 meters to the summit. The three climbers desisted even yesterday to continue his adventure because of head pains and now they are coming back to the Advanced Base Camp. In other aspect, the weather seems to be worst next five days, with a big window beginning in 23rd.
