Hello! This is Alex Abramov from Cho Oyu. (coughing) Our team has reached the height of 7100 meters. Tomorrow we will move to a height of 7500 meters, there it is the last camp, "under the yellow belt camp." And from there tomorrow night we will make an attempt to climb the summit. So on Monday, after lunch, wait for information. And yet here we are fine. This morning it was quite a strong wind, a little for frostbite. Then the wind went away and established a beautiful sunny weather. I wonder what will happen tomorrow. Just in case we decided to start later, at 10 a.m… All members of expedition convey greetings to family and friends! Goodbye!
