NEWSLETTERS - Cho Oyo Autumn 1998

Newsletter 96 September 1998

Tingri - BC

Set off at 8 am in an open truck for the 2 hr trip to BC. Rain threatens but we arrive dry. BC is on a flat green meadow next to a river. Other teams have already set-off for ABC, perhaps too quickly. The Sherpa staff cook an excellent meal for us and it is good to finally meet them. Without their help, hard work and friendship we will have no chance. A snow shower passes quickly revealing Cho Oyo, which looks HUGE. Chill out for rest of day.
