47th day of the Brazilian Expedition to the Top of the World.
Camp  3 (7,300m) - Camp 2 (6,500m). Very close to Camp 4, at 7,900m high.

We had minus 14 degrees Celsius at daybreak with a freezing wind at 7,300 of altitude, it looked like we would not advance up the mountain.  But the sunrise sent away the clouds and we were surprised with the results.

The Japanese expedition to Lhotse, whose chief is Takahashi, advanced up to 7,800m of altitude, where they want to set their Camp 4.

Our expedition, with the help of the Japanese and Korean Sherpas to Everest, surpassed the Yellow Band, attacked the Geneva Spur and was close to getting to the South Col, and so we accomplished this important phase of our climb.  Now the Sherpas have the conditions to carry equipment to the South Col in the next days.

Alir, Irivan and me descended to Camp 2, where we happily found Marcelo Bonga, with his tooth problem solved and full of will to join us.

Here on the top everything is fine, but in our Camp 1, where we had our storage tent, there was a big avalanche that swept it.  Incredible, but the tent disappeared, and so a tent of the Japanese expedition. Not a trace could be found.  Don't worry, we are not going to use that camp again.

Picture: In the middle of Lhotse's Face, we are just little black dots, nothing more.
Namaste!
