Whitman outdoor program chief to lead expedition in Tibet


Brien Sheedy, director of outdoor programs, has accepted an opportunity to guide a mountaineering expedition to Cho Oyu in Tibet. He will be there through mid-October and reports that campus community members can follow the expedition online via the Alpine Ascents International website.

This year's cybercasts will be largely text-based, supplemented by occasional satellite phone calls. He will have some access to email while on the trip.

Send messages in plain text format, no attachments, to climb@alpineascents.com with "For Cho-Oyu: Brien Sheedy" in the subject line. AAI receives all emails sent to this address and places them into an inbox for Brien to read while in Base Camp.
