who has summited Everest, Lhotse, Broad peak, Cho Oyu, and more, reports in from
Hi friends! We are back at base camp after 3 days working up high.
Yesterday we fixed until 6700 meters and we are satisfied. The face is like a
green ice fall and we have to climb with 2 ice axe and very carefully. Yesterday I, Darek and Piotre worked hard on the face and I climbed with a 500 meters rope
fixed on my harness...and at the end I fixed with 3 rock pitons. On the way
down I fixed the rope each 70 meters with ice screws and now we have 800 meters
ready to be climbed with jumar. Tomorrow Pierre and Jan should carry fix rope
till 6700 (the final point of fix rope) and then we will continue the job of
fixing... There is no place for C2... and we will study another solution....
Happy new year! Ciao Simone
Ciao and keep
in touch, Simone
