Ciao, Here is today's message for
Saturday, July 13. The weather is shit and we have a forecast for worse
weather for the next days...
Some expeditions are leaving BC and
other will follow in a week since they finished days and patience. Many
expeditions have arrived in early June, other at the end of May and they
told me of only 4 days of good weather.
I am practical and I expect long days
of waiting and a possible climb with snow to the waist and my ears
attentive for the noise of an avalanche.
The climbing of Broad Peak and K2 seems
utopia and the climb of one of the two would be exceptional and high
I am neither Rambo nor a martyr for my
ideals and I will do what is wisely possible. This is my message and my
spirit for the next difficult month. Also Barbara has well understood
what is life here and she on the same wave length, dividing the same
spirit and ideals.
In the meanwhile I send you some
pictures stolen in the few seconds of visibility.
Simone and Barbara
