Cho Oyu and Beyond ...

Cho Oyu climb for a cause is an awareness and fund-raising campaign aimed to help provide much needed education to our often neglected indigenous children in the remote parts of the country. The climb objective is to set a new altitude record, an attempt of the 6th highest mt & one of the peaks in the death zone. This event intends to bridge the education gap, and hope we provide our indigenous children a better future -- safe and away from a possible 'death zone'.

Cho Oyu Summit

Sept 28 - New altitude record set last September 26, 10:30 AM Nepal time.
Romi Garduce summits the top of Mt Cho Oyu, the 6th highest mountain. This
record gives the title to the first Filipino to reach an 8000m peak (also
known as the 'death zone').

More update to come in 3 to 4 days when Romi is back in Kathmandu. He 's
still in ABC (advanced base camp) as of this writing.

naka2lungkot knowing dat der is somebody who think like yours... im wondering if u r really a pinoy... instead n maging masaya and proud ka na may 3 pinoy n nkarating s tuktok ng everest here you are saying bad words to romi... weder his 3rd pinoy who reach the summit of everest still he makes us (ur not included) proud being a pinoy... romi's climb is not a RACE it's for a CAUSE... so, you better helf na lang our kaba2yans (if ur really a pinoy)instead of saying those words na walang kwenta...
