Arrival to base camp.
4/8: With great gratitude we accepted the
Puja, an incredible ceremony where we had
plenty of chang, food and dancing.
Departure with acclimatization to camp I, 6000
m. The fall is in good shape, although
not at all solid, but less dangerous than the
last seasons. Back in base camp, Dawa
was waiting for us with delicious and juicy
steaks. We had our classic Movie Night
(Romeo & Juliet)
4/13: Members move to camp One.
4/14: Puja for the Women Expeditions. At
the same time I started to prepare a meeting
with the leaders of other expeditions. I
really think it is necessary that all the
expeditions get together and work together in
case of emergency or other cases. After
two seasons at Everest I have realized that,
with so many expeditions on the same route, it
is very important that we can work together in
cooperation. Expeditions that agreed:
Alpine 8000 Everest 2002 Expedition (me,
Willie the leader)
International Mountain Guides.
Expedition Adventure Consultants.
4/15: Leaders meeting in my camp.
* Emergency treatment in high
* Lines fixation on the Lotse
* Radio frequency for each team.
* Have a lot of fun!
PS: The Lotse wall seems like a skating ring.
