  Simone Moro Winter Shishapangma Update: A hard day


 Everest Summiter Simone Moro reports in

Hi. Today it was very hard. We left camp 1 at 6100 meters very early in the morning and we climbed, as planned, over 7000 meters. There I deposited about 200 meters of rope, then I went back to 7000m to take more ropes and bring them up. Today our rucksacks were very heavy (about 30 kilos per person) and after all this work we took 2 hours to make a platform for our second camp at 7100 meters. Darek, who has 2 mattresses, went back down before reaching the second camp. So Piotr is without a mattress and laid on our rucksacks. Fortunately I brought mine by myself. The tent is not flat and we are very tired after this 12 hours of hard work, but we are not able to sleep….! Tomorrow morning we will get up very early, then we have to go down to bring up ropes that we deposited further down. If our bodies allow it, then tomorrow we will fixing till the ridge, hoping that we have enough rope…..

Ciao and follow us also tomorrow Simone (by satellitephone)
