  The first winter ascent of Shishapangma


 A reliable source reports to EverestNews.com that Andy Parkin and Victor Sanders will also attempt to make history on Shishapangma! Both Andy and Victor are both very experienced climbers in the Himalayas. They are expected to attempt a new route on Shishapangma this winter; therefore it appears they will not initially, at least, be climbing the same route as Simone Moro and his friends...

Stay tuned this might get interesting...

Brief information on Simone Moro team is below with more to follow...

"In a few hours I will fly to Kathmandu. After 3 day they will also arrive in Nepal 4 climbers from Poland. Our aim is to realize the first winter ascent of Shishapangma 8027 meters.

The team will be of 3 climbers + one other base camp manager. We will attempt the Wielicki route. He had planned come with us but at the last minute he had something come up... Also my climbing partner Denis Urubko wanted to come but he did not get funding.

It will be a difficult and extreme climb but I’m not looking for easy life and climbs because in that case “I have many way to find different fun and relax….”

Ciao and keep in touch, Simone
