Steve House and Cory Richards, Makalu 2009: Back to Normal

Steve House  /  May 19, 2009  /  1 Min Read  /  Climbing

Camp 2 on normal route 3

After last week's scary call it was great to hear a spry sounding Steve House on the voicemail this morning. He recovered well from his bout with HAPE and will be heading up to camp 2 on Makalu's normal route tomorrow. Have a listen and you'll hear about the healing atmosphere of a yak pasture, some observations on the style in which the Indian army recently climbed Makalu and Steve's thoughts on the use of bottled oxygen in mountaineering.
