  Expedice HI-TEC V-LITE Nanga Parbat - K2 2005: "No I can admit it, I was scared!"


www.radekjaros.cz

The summit view. Radek: "K2 8 611m in the middle, Broad Peak 8 047m on the right. Wish we see it from the other side within a month time!! This is how I saw the Karakorum range on June 28. Miska came short of 200m. Too little, too much? Who knows. The truth is that thanks to it he will be able to see many such views in the future. Victories and losses, both add strength!"

Update: Radek Jaros and Petr "Miska" Masek, aka HI-TEC V-LITE Nanga Parbat-K2 Czech Expedition, left Skardu for the K2 BC early in the morning on July 7. They had planned to leave a day or two later, but their agency failed to get a trekking permit for them for those later dates.

Radek summited Nanga Parbat on June 28, Petr turned back 200 or 250 meters below the summit. This was their "summit bid itinerary":

Radek: "This is how we moved along the Diamir Face of Nanga Parbat during our summit bid:

"June 24: BC - C2; change of altitude --1900m, 10 hrs.

 June 25: C2 - C3, 800m; 12 hrs plus 2hrs of digging a platform and setting a tent.

 June 26: C3 - C2; 800m; 3 hrs.

 June 27: C2 - C4; 1,200m; 10 hrs.

 June 28: C4 - summit - C4; 1000m up, 9 hrs, 1000m down, 4 hrs.

 June 29: C4 - BC; 3000m; 8hrs."

Radek: "Camp 4. We are less than a vertical kilometer from the summit". The summit view: Writes Radek: "K2 8 611m in the middle, Broad Peak 8 047m on the right. Wish we see it from the other side within a month time!! This is how I saw the Karakorum range on June 28. Miska came short of 200m. Too little, too much?  Who knows. The truth is that thanks to it he will be able to see many such views in the future. Victories and losses, both add strength!"

 

 

Radek back at C4 after reaching the summit of Nanga: "An old man and the sea. Actually, an old man and the mountain! Nanga has left a good few years on my face and a some grey hair. Now I can admit it: I was scared. There are many places on this mountain, where I felt that we don't have it under control. An avalanche slope, crevasses, God save if the snow mass thorned away below us...Ouuuch, good that I don't need to come back ever again!"
