 SummitClimb Cho Oyu 2004: Wrap UP!


Checking in from Kathmandu, Nepal. This is Ryan Waters, SummitClimb Cho Oyu Expedition leader saying hello on behalf of our entire team and staff. We made the hike down from ABC to Basecamp on October 5th. The members began catching Landcruisers for the ride to Tingri, and the staff loaded all of our gear on a truck and the whole team made it in time to spend the night in Tingri. Thank god, because as we all know, that is where the nearest disco was located. After many a day on the mountain, Neill had lots of performing built up in his system and took control of the Kareokee situation. There were many great performances that night including a beautiful duet rendition of "Like a bridge over troubled water" by Jacques and Roland.  

The next day, October 6th, we traveled to the Nepal border where we were met by our trekking agent Murari Sharma and a bus to take us the rest of the way to Kathmandu. All the members were happy to get a good shower and go out for some good food. Some made it out to Tom and Jerry's for a few libations and the start of the celebration of a successful expedition. Tonight we have been invited to Mr. Murari's house for a celebration dinner, which we are all excited about. Over all it was a safe, fun, and successful trip and on behalf of myself and Arnold Coster, and the rest of our staff, I would like to congratulate all of our climbing team members. Thanks to friends, family, and sponsors. And congratulations to Ms. Maya Sherpa, believed to be the first Nepalese women to reach the summit of Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world. 

We wish the best of luck to our friends on the SummitClimb Ama Dablam Expedition which is now underway. Thank you to EverestNews.com for your coverage.
