The Himalayan Cataract Project team Summits Cholatse!

I was lucky to work with "Light of the Himalaya" with Peter Athans, Conrad Anker, Kristoffer Erickson, Michael Brown, Dr. Jeff Tabin & Dr. Sanduk Ruit. Also they climbed Mt. Cholatse after the cataract /TheHimalayanCataractProjectteamSummitsCholatseMay122005.shtml

First summit attempt aborted at 20,000 feet

"On May 9th, Pete Athans, Geoff Tabin, Conrad Anker, Kristoffer Erickson and Michael Brown made an impressive 21 hour round-trip push up the southwest ridge reaching over 20,000 feet. Back at Base Camp we awoke this morning to see Conrad and Kris making a second attempt on Cholatse along with Kevin Thaw, John Griber and Abby Watkins.”
