Current Pakistan Time
Jean Christophe Lafaille
Translations by Fabienne for EverestNews.com
15th 2003: Hi, Jean-Christophe was sicker than he thought he was…
probably contaminated by the water or another thing. He thus spent 3 days at
the base camp, lengthened with stomach troubles and all what goes with…
was feeling better, he went to walk on a small mountain beside the base camp,
and the feelings were good. He does not have too many regrets to have because
finally the crenel weather wouldn’t have made it possible to Jean-Christophe
to make the ascent. The weather is capricious and changes from one day to
another. As difficult as at Dhaulagiri! The forecasts of the week to come are
not very nice, snow, in significant quantities, all the week long. The first
falls will begin tomorrow evening.
Jean-Christophe, according to his shape will may climb tomorrow morning to
camp 2, in order to move before bad weather comes, and before the waiting time
at base camp. Mood is all right in spite of the small preoccupations with the
health of these last days and weather forecasting!
At the end
of June, I leave to join Jean-Christophe in Pakistan. I will wait for him in
Skardu and we will go together to the Broad Peak. It will take us a week of
walk to join the base camp located around 4900 meters. I will stay at the base
camp while he will try the last 8000 of his series! We will return to France
together. Translations by Fabienne for EverestNews.com
