We will leave KTM on the 8th to Pokhara and then fly to Jomosom on the 9th. We plan to reach the BC on the 16th. We will stay at the BC until the 11th of October and then be back in KTM on the 14th. We plan to make 3 camps : C1, 5800 m on the North East pass, C2, 6600 m and C3, 7400 m. 4 of us have skis to go to camp 1 or 2; JP OLLAGNIER will try to ski from the summit if good conditions. No problem in KTM, still very hot.
