image story

Sep 27, 2004 11: 40 EST

Jean is back in cyberspace after his summit of Cho Oyu and also reports that he, Monica, Tom, Sherpas Purba and Dawa summited Cho Oyu 8201 m yesterday.
A few hours later the Himalayan experience team summited except Mark Inglis who summited today on his 46 birthday.

Jean Pavillard is a mountain guide in Chamonix, France. Just last year, he helped heart transplant survivor Kelly Perkins and her husband Craig to reach the top of Matterhorn 4,478 m (14,693 ft), dubbed by early climbers "the awful mountain". With them were Tim and Michael Brown of Serac films; Michael filmed Kelly and Craig's ascent.

Needless to say, Jean knows his knots and rope techniques. A page on his website is dedicated to just that - "techniques and tricks".

Jean is currently on Cho You with his small expedition. They have been using Contact 3.0 for some great shots and dispatches.
