K2/Chogori 2002: Simone Moro    
Ciao, Here is today's message for Saturday, July 13. The weather is shit and we have a forecast for worse weather for the next days...

Some expeditions are leaving BC and other will follow in a week since they finished days and patience. Many expeditions have arrived in early June, other at the end of May and they told me of only 4 days of good weather.

I am practical and I expect long days of waiting and a possible climb with snow to the waist and my ears attentive for the noise of an avalanche.

The climbing of Broad Peak and K2 seems utopia and the climb of one of the two would be exceptional and high performance.

I am neither Rambo nor a martyr for my ideals and I will do what is wisely possible. This is my message and my spirit for the next difficult month. Also Barbara has well understood what is life here and she on the same wave length, dividing the same spirit and ideals.

In the meanwhile I send you some pictures stolen in the few seconds of visibility.

Simone and Barbara
