Cho Oyu News of our expedition 28 August 4 Oct.
Our Cho Oyu team of men and women of all ages and abilities from around the world returned yesterday from Tibet. They had an excellent leader, very good Sherpas, good logistics, and excellent weather. Congratulations on Reaching the Summit! Thanks to everyone involved and especially their families, colleagues, sponsors and friends for your support. We climb Cho Oyu twice each year, with our next climb planned for April. www.ChoOyuClimb.com
