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


Dispatch 16 & 17: 7/26/03: After 2 days on the K2 face carrying to camp 3 all the climbing equipment to fix camp 4 and the bottle neck, I return back to Broad Peak base camp 4900 meters to take rest. Denis Uruko was with me till camp 3 and he remained there to wait for a team of Kazakhstan climbers and together go to camp 4 and if the weather will be good also to attempt the summit.

I will do my attempt to K2 around 4 august probably with Inaki Ochoa. After 2 months in Pakistan for Nanga Parbat and Broad peak we need to get all our power to try safely climb K2. I saw too many slow people on the mountain and the danger of accident jump on you very easily if you are in that physical conditions...

The bad weather stopped Denis Urubko and his team at 7800 meters (C4). Now they are in the tent in the last camp waiting for better conditions and I spoke with them this morning at 8 a.m.

Wind and clouds reduced the visibility at 20/30 meters and they had been obliged to wait in the tent since tomorrow.

At Camp 3 7200 meters another team of Kazak climbers are in the same conditions...waiting.

If tomorrow nothing will change they have to make some decisions.

Now Iím in Broad Peak base camp after sleeping in K2 camp 3. I follow the advise of the weather report and this time I had been lucky.... In any case I hope that the weather will help my friends and members  on K2 and could be wonderful if they can come back with the summit.... Ciao Simone Moro
