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


Dispatch 18: The weather had been exactly as the report said some days ago. Some climbers that did not believe in that and who had been on Abruzzi Spur in the last 3 days, had been obliged to resist at the snowfall, wind and avalanche danger. The 2 Kazak team at 7800 m C4 and 7200 m C3 stopped for 2 nights on the camps and only the first team this morning tried to go to the summit with stormy weather and they stopped at 8200 for the high danger and crazy weather conditions. I personally think they took risks for nothing....!! I hate the illogical decision and heroism but it is only a personal opinion. K2 tragedy of 1986 and Everest 1996 probably didnít teach anything.

Now all the climbers on K2 are coming back but is not clear if they will be back to BC or they stopped in low camps on the route. I hope for me and for the the friends that I have in the Kazakhstan team that the weather will return to be nice and the condition of the mountain safe. In that case will be a pleasure to try K2, the king of the 8000. Ciao Simone Moro
