March 22, 2004 - Martin from Dingboche: Martin and Richard summitted on Island
Peak yesterday and then came down directly to Dingboche where they slept last
night. The previous night at High Camp (5700 m) had been difficult because of
high winds that tore down their tent. They had to get up after a couple of
hours in their sleeping bags, to fix it and to better rope it down to prevent
it from being blown away. They therefore had slept very little when they
started the summit push. Things were even worse for Martin who was still
having gastric problems and was not feeling good. In spite of that, they did
not find the summit push to difficult and they were on top at 6189 m early
without hardly being disturbed by the altitude. They are very happy about the
way they have acclimatized so far. Therefore, they decided to change their
inerary. Rather then coming down all the way to Namche Bazaar (3440 m) to rest
for a few days, as they were supposed to do, they will now stop at Pangboche
(3958 m) to rest. Unfortunately for us, this means that will not be able to
access the internet to send us dispatches before they reach Base Camp on March
31. However, further news can be expected from Martin within one or two days
as he is supposed to call his wife for her birthday.
