Baruntse and Mera Peak Expedition 2014

Leader and updates: Stu Peacock

31st October: Stu called in today with an update. Yesterday we came down from Camp 1 to Base Camp, leaving a stash of gear in the tent at Camp 1. In the evening another team reported that a freak gust of extremely strong wind had blown away tents at Camp 1! Phurba went up to investigate but despite it having broken free, and blown some distance- our tent was still intact with all the gear inside and is now firmly secured once more.

Today we are enjoying a rest day at Base Camp and looking at the forecast for the coming days. The 4th is looking most favourable at the moment, but we will keep checking the forecast. We have a tent stashed at Camp 2 so are have everything in place to make the summit push when conditions allow.

Cho Oyu 2014 Expedition

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.
