This is Amy, Chris's sister with a summit update from Camp 1. He called while he was cooking - it was only 10 degrees, but with no wind which is good. They plan to head up to Camp 2 tomorrow (wed) and then go straight from Camp 2 to summit on Thursday and all the way back down by Friday the 15th. They really have to boogie it back down as they have a ride waiting for them at base camp on the 15th. Chris said not to expect to hear anything until late on Thursday, so if you don't hear from me, its b/c they are not in a good place to call yet.
Laurent and Chris were joined by Chris's good friend Fred Strang. Chris and Fred have been climbing together for years, so it will make for a good solid team. The only mitigating factor of course is weather, so please send calm and clear thoughts to Cho Oyu in Nepal over the next 3 days!
post a question if you have any and thanks for following, I know that they really appreciate it!
