There is big chess championship. Actually, only Miska and I
participate in never ending chess game. I am winning so far. So, you probably
understand that we are again in Base Camp. Two days ago, we were planning
weekend climbing trip into Camp 2, at least. We made it to Camp 1 (third time
within 5 days) and little bit higher towards our previous depo above Camp 1.
At the same place, we were forced to turn around, leaving a few more kg of
load. On the same day in the evening, we were back at Base Camp.
Weather will be bad for at least two more days which means
more chess, music, laundry, eating and drinking.
We are being frequently visited by French climber.
Yesterday, couple of Swiss from Broad Peak BC stopped by and brought us a good
Swiss chocolate. Another Swiss expedition should show up today or tomorrow. To
our advantage, most of our supplies for all camps are in our Camp 1 which
means we will not have to wait for the line at the base of the mountain. We
need 3 good days to be able to establish Camp 2 and 3, then rest a bit and
then hopefully first summit attempt.
But right now, there is just another round of chess.
