Dispatch 19: Today all the members of
Kazakhstan team came back to base camp. They said that
they are quite tired and that on the K2 there is now new
snow.... In fact also this night we get big rain at 5000
meters and it means snowfall in higher altitude.
Today is the birthday of Denis Urubko and he
is now 30 years old.
Tomorrow he will visit
us at Broad Peak base camp and he will spend here some days.
Here is more relaxed
situation and far of the “competitions” and strategies of K2 climb. Now we
need to rest and not to be involved in the stress of the tactic theories. We
will start to attempt K2 around 4 august if the weather will change. In case
it will remain like in the last days, I have to start to prepare my baggage
because the 9/10 august I have to leave the base camp. The 15th August I will
have the flight to Italy.....
Ciao Simone Moro
