So, the members of the
Romanian expedition are now in Base Camp, they also went to the Advanced Base
Camp at the beginning of this week. Tomorrow they will start climbing to the
Advanced Base Camp: tomorrow will go there 4 persons, On Sunday another 4 and
on Monday 4 more.
They have already set up the
Advanced Base Camp and 6 tents at Camp 1. They say that in BC it is very cold
( minus 15-20 degrees at night ) and that the wind is blowing heavily. In 3
weeks they hope to fix the tents in all the superior camps and around May 10
they will be ready for the ascension and will wait for the fine days that will
allow them to climb to the peak.
All the members are ok, there
are no health problems. The Sherpas told them that the fine days will come
after a great storm on the mountain, as it usually happens there. The team
from PROTV (well known television channel in Romania) are still at the border
with China, with all the necessary equipment for transmissions, and they are
to arrive in Base Camp next week.
