Maltese Climbers on Cho Oyo

By Guest Blogger in Walking and Trekking, The Himalaya - 14th September 2009

No comments

A team of climbers from Malta are breaking national records in the Khumbu. They are currently undertaking altitude training on the mighty Cho Oyu, the sixth highest of the world's peaks, ahead of their planned 2010 summit bid of Everest. Advanced base camp at 5700 metres is their current position, as they head up the mountain and back down again, pushing their limit each time.

On Friday they reached 6400 metres. Their aim is to achieve the highest altitude that a Maltese climber has ever reached, beyond 8000 metres, hence the name of their expedition: Challenge 8000.  Of course, the peak of Mount Everest awaits at a mighty 8848 metres.
