Correction to Cho Oyu summit story
image story

Sep 16, 2004 06: 07 EST
Yesterday we ran a special on the location of the actual highest point of Cho Oyu. In the article, we wrote that Jamie McGuinness is leader of the Australian outfit Field Touring Alpine. That's incorrect.

Although Jamie did lead a group for FTP this summer, he normally runs his own outfit - the Project Himalaya.

Jamie is currently on Cho Oyu (a mountain he summited 4 times before) leading his own group: "I will send you news and photos when there is something interesting, and will definitely send you pictures from the true summit! I will also GPS it."

Jamie also dispatches to his site, Project-Himalaya.com.
Although Jamie guides commercial groups he summitted Everest (from the north) working as a load-carrying sherpa! "I also run wild exploratory treks very different from what other companies run." Next year he will be working with DCXP for 8000m expeditions.

Go check out Jamies world in the links section.

Project Himalaya is Jamie McGuinness (NZ), Joel Schone and Kim Bannister. Specialties are teahouse trekking in the Everest region (with a peak climb or two), Kangchenjunga region treks, trek-climbs and exploration, climbing trips in the Annapurna region, real exploratory treks and exploratory 6000m peak climbs, Tibet trips, especially Kailash and Lhasa-Everest BC-Kathmandu overland, Zanskar and Ladakh treks and trek-climbs and exploration, Peak climbs of Cho Oyu 8201m and Shishapangma 8027m. The outfit runs around 10-12 trips each year.
