8000 Meters Facts
back from 3 days on the face of Shishapangma
Simone Moro reports in from
Shishapangma Base camp.....
Hello friends!! We are back to base camp after 3 difficult days on the face.
We reached 7000 meters and fixed 1500 meters of rope. We didn’t find any place
to place our last camp (C2) but we still continue to climb and fix rope.... We
are thinking to do a bivac for the final attempt...
The face is totally icy and vertical and
we have to climb with helmets and 2 ice axes. From the summit ridge stones and
ice continues to fall and we “play” to avoid the impact....
I’m sending you 2 photos to understand our
Follow us Simone
Ciao and keep
in touch, Simone
