Silvio Mondinelli Shishapangma 2003


Shishapangma 2003ŠSilvio Mondinelli

Silvio Mondinelli: After a period of bad weather Silvio and his friends on 5th October planned to get back on Shishapangma. So Gnaro and some of his teammates went to CII and spend some hours over there. At 1 a.m. Silvio and Mario started their ascent, because of the strong wind and low temperatures they stopped until 5 a.m. at 7300 meters in a tent put by a Japanese expedition. The way up to the summit was very difficult because of the recent snowfall that make the risk of avalanche very high. So at 1 p.m. Gnaro, Mario and one Australian guy Andrew, that they both know from Kang [has to be Andrew Lock], summited Shishapangma central. Once they reached the fore-summit, they all decided that it was just too dicey to go any further. On their way down they spend the night at CII, this morning they descend to ABC.

For Gnaro [Silvio] this is the second time that he reached the fore-summit, the other one was in 1996 together with Simone Moro.
