  Simone Moro attempts Nanga Parbat (8125 meters), K2 (8611 meters) and Broad Peak (8047 meters) all in two months!


Dispatch: Translated FROM FRENCH:

Summit on Broad Peak!!! The main summit has been climbed yesterday by myself and by Iņaki Ochoa de Olza, at 11 hours in the morning, in Alpine style and under very strong winds. Lafaille and Ed V. have done the same leaving from camp 3 at 7100 m. We have met at the summit, after having opened the trail, erased by the wind. We are at base camp and tomorrow Lafaille, Ed V. and Alberto Magliano will go back home. With the 8 Kazaks (3 have reached Broad's summit today) K2 is being attacked now... if weather permits, and so our strength. Bye.

FROM SPANISH:

The main summit of Broad has been climbed!!! I and Iņaki Ochoa de Olza have reached yesterday at 11 hours in the morning in Alpine style from Camp 2 (6,200) the main summit of Broad Peak. Ed V. and J. C. Lafaille have also crowned it, although both of them left from camp 3 at 7,100 m. We have met at the summit, under a clean sky and a very strong wind that had erased the trail, which has made us work hard. We are already at base camp and tomorrow Lafaille and his wife Katia will go back home, along with Ed V. and the Italian Alberto Magliano. For me, Iņaki and the 8 members of the Kazak team (three of them have made Broad's summit today) the fight with K2 starts today... if the weather and our strength permit. Bye.
