K2/Chogori Winter 2003

EverestNews.com, Please, send our regards and best wishes to Broad Peak Winter Expedition. The situation is difficult for both expeditions. We are receiving by e-mail excellent weather forecasts from Muhammad Hanif, the senior of Pakistan meteorologist. The last news was very difficult to us to read. The stormy weather and wet spell with very short breaks of clear weather is going to be until the end of February.  Since a few days we are fighting for a base camp which the wind and blizzard trying to destroy our Karakorum's home. Nobody is on the North Ridge. It is impossible. We can hear the sound of the hurricane on the mountains which are surrounding us. Our expeditions was ready to the final attempt. Four camps were ready. The highest on the altitude 7630 meters. Now, we do not know if there are still on the slopes of K2. The hurricane could take off or destroy the tents. We can not see K2. We are in the clouds, fog and permanent blizzard. All the best Monika Rogozinska
