He has no tent or ropes to help him and probably no oxygen

May 12, 2006 update

Earlier today, a group of Sherpas working with Philippine GMA7 expedition were climbing above C-2 on the south side.  They took some images of Park Young-Seok and Sherap Jangbu Sherpa.  (They both looked healthy.)  Park and Sherap Jangbu hope to reach BC today.
