  Simone Moro and company: Winter Shishapangma


 Everest Summiter Simone Moro reports in...
Candele in Tibet TOMORROW I will get my new visa. and the day after I will start from Kathmandu to return in Base camp. My sickness is getting better and better and the virus will  disappear using antibiotic. I planned to arrive to base camp in two days from Kathmandu.

My friends also are feeling better and they established 2 tents in ABC. They reported to me that the weather and temperature had changed and now is extremely cold always. We will have a particulars Christmas and during the expedition we will continue to update you about our progress. The 2 English climbers (Andy Parkin and Victor Sanders) that started the 2nd November to climb the same [our] face and mountain are living at Base camp and returning home. They didn't reached the summit because of the strong wind. They should have reached camp 2 but only when I will personally meet them or my friends I will be more precise about that. They are friendly giving to my members some advises for our next month. So follow us Simone

ITA: Domani avro' il mio nuovo visto per entrare in Cina e dunque in Tibet. Dopo domani sara' dunque il girono del nuovo viaggio che mi portera' a Kodhari

- Zangmu-Nyalam. Il giorno successivo conto di arrivare direttamente ai 5255 metri del campo base. I miei compagni hanno installato due tendine al campo base avanzato e mi dicono che il grande freddo e' arrivato ed e' la costante della giornata. Il cielo coperto o velato non lascianoalcuna possibilita' ai raggi del sole di scaldare un pochino l'ambiente. Vorra' dire che avremo un Natale "tipico...." I due inglesi (Andy Parkin e Victor Sanders) che erano partiti il 2 Novembre per tentare la stessa nostra parete e cima stanno lasciando il campo base per fare rientro a casa. Troppo vento e condizioni severe li hanno fatti desistere dal loro intento. Ora ci stanno amichevolmente dando alcuni consigli per affrontare i problemi della scalata. Per oggi e' tutto ed ora mi vado a mangiare un bel piatto di pasta al ristorante italiano Fire and Ice. Presto ne sentiro' la mancanza......... Simone

Ciao and keep in touch, Simone
