Kangshung Face

Hungarian Everest Expedition reports in...

Hey, it is going to be a real climbing, a wonderful wall! - he murmurs and has a sip from his tea. David

We're going upwards at a constant slow pace and are constantly gasping for breath quickly.

The siege's begun but we're not in a hurry.

Because this is my lucky number I try to trace for You, dear website visitor, what and where the others are doing...

Everest Kangshung Face: Andrαs, with morning swing, takes panoramic photos from the ridge above BC.

We don't let poor Konyi climb at all. We have found something to solder here, in ABC, too... 

At the margin between darkness and twilight, around five o'clock in the morning, I'm sipping my tea alone...

The crew of 'spaltni' camp: Konyi and Miki rush up to the end of the fixed line...

(Our cook Shamser, Zoli, Αkos and David) namely the 'SZΑD' (which stand for 'your mouth') are carrying all kinds of things Between ABC, the repository and 'spaltni' camp.

While we, hedonists, wake up on pleasant couches of ABC - God forgive: of BC - our advance party, Konyi and Miki open their eyes...

A packing day. Our last stand, set up at 6100 meters, is now in the stage called 'traverse'. We had to go on snow 

prepare for a night climbing marathon

It starts last night...

The radio channels are hissing...

The weather plays us like an instrument. 

Today the weather started reassuringly

We don't know if we can believe it: if the fine sunny weather will last or not 

With the arrival of the warmth of the sun, the process of moving stuff gets started on the wall. Besides the watchful eyes of Akos (the avalanches continue with their customary enthusiasm)

Misty morning... the ice ledge squeaks under me

In our base camp enthusiastic work proceeds.

We're not hurrying anywhere...

Our decision is final. Without the peak, but we would like to travel home with our skins intact.

The removal of the ropes attached to the wall, the disassembly of the equipment....

Up there, in the crevice, the boys (Konyi, Zoli and Tool) work for a while.

I light up a pipe. Evening slinks towards the camp.

In the morning, in the face of the uncertain weather, they clambered up the route made so far to the end and continued the rather discouraging work ... 

The route and progress of the Hungarian Everest Kangshung Face Expedition.

The Explorers team, after dismounting their fixed line, 'spaltni' camp, depository, ABC and BC, arrived back to Kathmandu ...
