Winter Shishapangma: Got YOU!
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
Ciao, Simone Moro
