I wanted to share with the summitpost community a horrible experience I just went through on Cho Oyu.
I wrote this piece for friends and family, so please be patient with the little explanations of what would be obvious to you or I (about what HAPE is and what AMS is etc etc).
So many people came back to me saying I should share this out with the mountain community. So here goes.
I hope you enjoy the read as much as they did. It's certainly an experience I will carry with me for life:http://kheirydotcom.wordpress.com/2011/ ... -the-ogre/
