 The South Face of Nuptse Autumn 2003 Update


 

Today we flew in Katmandu. We have got the tickets from Katmandu on 14.11, and from Dakha on 15.11 at 12:20. It means that on 15.11 we should be in Moscow in the evening: only force major circumstance can prevent from that plan. Tomorrow there will be a briefing in the Ministry of tourism of Nepal.

We celebrated Valery's birthday in Lukla and treated people with a pie baked by our cook Pasang. So it turned out, that our expedition began from my birthday, and successfully came to the end in Valery's birthday. We have a lot thing to do in Katmandu, I hope we will successfully finish them; we are ready to all meetings.

Objectively I consider this ascent as a high class climbing, but not because that we made it. Our forces gradually come back to us. We are already thinking about new plans. The energy of success is, certainly, a magic energy. People say, that perfect persons can precisely use the energy of failure with the same result!? Happy greetings to you all.
