well-equipped tents. We also moved a little bit higher

waiting for us. During the night between 19th and 20th
April, the hurricane broke out over the base. All
expedition had some losses as a result of it. We lost
four tents, which we successfully got back with most
of the equipment.
undisputable hero of this night was the leader

Tomorrow the Georgians are going out. The weather
conditions are indifferent, all area we move on is
