 The South Face of Nuptse Autumn 2003 Update 8


 Valery Babanov

Message by Irina Agarkova from Namche Bazaar:

I left Valera with Yura in Tengboche several hours ago. They both are up to the mark, though, obviously, their mood is spoiled slightly with a barren attempt. Weather has broken and they decided to spend several days in Tengboche and to have a rest there. I’m going to move to Lukla tomorrow and to fly immediately to Katmandu, Deli, Moscow and Zurich from it. Not so easy, but I’ll try to. I’m overwhelmed with impressions as it was my first Nepal travel.

PS Here is a message from Valera: “Hi! It the 24th of October today. Our push to summit was terminated two days ago (i.e. on the 22nd of October). We were stopped with a hurricane at 7000 m. After it, we descended to our base camp. Nevertheless, we are still in high spirits and are looking forward to try the summit again.

Our American friends (Fabrizio Zangrilli and Billy Pierson – ed. note) will close their expedition tomorrow (October 25) and go down. One of them got hurt in the leg during a stone-fall. Irina goes home too, so we’ll be left alone here.

Now we are having a rest in a famous “Amadablam Garden Lodge” in Deboche. We got two or three leisure days. Weather made a nasty turn. It was raining this night. It is a depressing overcast now. We hope for the best, though. That’s all for today, our thanks to all who think and care of us, Valera and Yura. Deboche, 24.10

BASK Company is the general sponsor of expedition.
Sponsors: Beal, Canon, Simond, Boreal,
