More Himilayan Climbing Updates


MountEverest.net has yet more updates from the teams in the Himalayas. For starters, the Spanish team on Everest who gave up on their bid for the summit yesterday are making a treacherous descent to day. They’ll be moving over 2300 meters down on a route that has no fixed ropes. As of this writing, they have not been heard from yet, so lets keep our fingers crossed that all is well. Elsehwere, there has been a large avalance on the Lhotse face, climbers have aborted a second bid at the summit on Dhaulagiri, while bad weather turned back another team on Shisha Pangma, and finally, some crazy man decided the best way to descend Cho Oyo was on skis.
