Lobuche Peak via Gokyo Ri and Everest BC

Leader: Chris Kunhardt

16th October: Chris rang today with an update for the team. They arrived at Gorak Shep today after a challenging 14 hour trip over the Cho La Pass in near white out conditions yesterday. This evening they will ascend Kala Patar, for some great views of Everest, weather permitting.The skies are blue at the moment, so they are hopeful for a beautiful sunset.

Everyone is well and in good spirits. In the next few days they plan to climb the main objective, Lobuche Peak. The forecast is looking good for the next few days, so hopefully they will have a good weather window.

Cho Oyu 2014 Expedition

100% Summit Success on Cho Oyu!!!

29th September: Our patience and tactics paid off. we moved up the mountain using intermediate camps and sat out a windy day at 1.5 with the promise of a settled spell. We moved up to Camp 3 at7500m and spent a cold evening before launching for the summit.

Every member of the AP team and our sherpa, Onchyou summited Cho Oyu on a perfect day. The snow was crisp and good under food. a little wind blew the clouds away and we had views of almost every Himalayan mountain you can think of. We are looking forward to getting back to Kathmandu and the delights there.
