  HI-TEC & High Point Expedition Dhaulagiri ugly weather


Dhaulaghiri  –  Radek Jaros
We had to wait for our carriers for many hours until they brought our stuff. At that time we had no idea that they would leave us next day and run back to the valley. They didn't even bring all of our equipment into one spot. They left everything here and there in a distance of couple kilometers in the height of 5 000m. In the end we had to collect everything ourselves.
 



The carriers went for the second round with us in the height of 5 350m. The truth is the carriers would not be able to last the whole trip up for the first time anyway, because of the length of the road and the weather condition. My hands were so frozen, I almost cried by the pain. On the other site our cloths is really durable against anything. HIGH POINT jacket protected us against any water that was running even over our head and faces. Under the jacket we were still dry! We had shoes from HI-TEC on our feet already for many days and they were still very durable against any wetness. This situation was the most challenging I ever remember for the cloths and shoes I wear. I mean it seriously!
 



This is a saddle from which you can see the Annapurna. When would I have the time to look at them closer? I am not sure, however I might plan that trip for the year 2008 together with one incredible high mountain :-)
 



You can see Dhaulaghiri!!! We have seen it for the first time. I took the picture of Dhaulaghiri and Roman took picture of me :-). In the saddle was very windy and we didn't have time to enjoy the view for too long. I have to admit, I had no idea that the shoulder on the left side is the way to go up. I found out after we went to the Base Camp.
 



Bye Radek
