Translations by Fabienne for EverestNews.com
Jean-Christophe is now
completely recovered from the gastro problem he had!
Last June 16th he left base
camp at 4.000m in order to go straight to Camp 3 at 7.000m, which means that
he feels really all right. If he has done 3000m of climbing during the day,
this is not only to make some exercise but first to assemble the material he
has left at camp 2 following his health problem which required his return to
base camp, and that he has to convey to camp 3 in order to have
deposits of material in the various camps for the final phase
of the ascent.
The Summit: Yesterday night,
over the phone, I felt him happy and reassured to feel better.
forecasting are rather odd at this moment, bad weather is not confirmed yet.
During 18 and 19, it should snow in a significant quantity all day long.
Jean-Christophe has decided to left to Camp 1 at 4.900m tomorrow at the
end of the day and to spend the night there, and start the ascent to the
summit the following day, 19th.
If the weather forecasts are
wrong again, he should reach Nanga Parbat summit on June 21st or 22nd.
If Yann’s forecasts are
confirmed, he will be forced to go back to base camp because there is strong
bad weather for 2 or 3 days. The forecasts seem more lenient
as from the next week with good weather and not too much wind. We will
see during these next 48 hours… Translations by Fabienne for EverestNews.com
