  Simone Moro Winter Shishapangma: Got YOU!


 
Hi friends!! Here again in front of computer to send you this report.. Darek Zaluski came back to base camp after his night in C2 and ABC. Yesterday our leader Jan Szulc made a nice joke with us and by radio told us from base camp that this morning he wanted to try summit using the bottle of oxygen that he decided to carry in ABC for safety. We ( I and Piotr) was surprised and a little disappointed about this project because we worked 1 month fixing rope and we hope to have the first attempt..... This morning Jan arrived in base camp smiling and joking with us....... "bastard" !!!!

Today we received the weather forecast from Italy where my girlfriend Barbara contacted Mr. Gabel in Insbruck. Gabel is really a king of the forecast. No one mistake in 45 days...... Great !!!!!!!!

The forecast advised us to wait one day more and try the summit the 17th January. The 19th yaks will start from base camp to go back...................

Last curiosity. In one of the photos you can see our cook to arrange water to give us to eat and drink............

Ciao, Simone Moro
