Broad Peak Winter 2003 Expedition

CLICCA PER INGRANDIRE Update 2/4/2003: Silvio phoned this morning.

Yesterday the expedition established Camp I at 5800 meters. The climbers have been obliged to installing fixed ropes along the route for about 400 meters as the ice and fresh snow, after the strong wind of the last few days, make the way more dangerous than usual. During this first walk they transport most of the equipment that they will need in the future. The sunshine is in the sky but it is still very cold. In the afternoon they were back to BC and they found a surprise, the two stoves installed inside the tent where they are normally eat were out.... probably the gasoline is frozen inside!

Today they spent the day in BC making many shoots necessary for the television program. Their program for the next days is going tomorrow on Camp I and spend the night over there and the day after trying to reach the platform where they will be able to installed Camp II.

Naturally all depending of the condition of the weather.

The local name of Broad peak is Faichan Kangri. The height of main peak is 8047 meters/26,401ft. It is called Broad Peak because of its breadth at the top. Broad Peak is one of the 8000 meters peaks which towers above the Concordia at the heart of the Karakoram range. It lies on the Pakistan/China frontier between K2 and the Gasherbrum peaks and was first climbed by four Austrians in 1957, including Kurt Diemberger and Herman Buhl.
