Dear Family & Friends,

Welcome to the official blog/news/dispatch site for our expedition to Cho Oyu.

At 8201m Cho Oyu – known to locals as ‘The Turquoise Goddess‘ - is one of only 14 peaks above 8000m and the 6th highest on Earth. It straddles the border between Nepal and Tibet and lies approximately 30km west off Everest.

On August 29th this year a group of 7 team members lead by Angel Armesto and myself will meet in Kathmandu before heading across the border to Tibet in an attempt to climb Cho Oyu via the standard North West route.

Maps and a proposed itinerary will be posted shortly so stay tuned.
