Alexander Abramov by the
phone from camp ABC (6500meters).
forecast is constantly displaced for 1-2 days. Still yesterday it seemed
to us, that June, 1 there will be a good weather. Under today's forecasts
it is clear, that June, 1 there will be not a best day for an ascent. The
best conditions will be June, 2-3. But it is already impossible to choose.
We hear last days constantly: that good weather, bad …. Now the first
group led by Nikolay Сherny is at camp of 7700 meters. They inform, that
the strong wind blows. The wind tears tents while, fortunately, has not
broken off. What the second team will to do tomorrow, finally have not
decided. But we hope, that we shall go upwards under the plan. We plan to
leave right after breakfast. Today there was a general meeting, we have
discussed all details, have agreed cooperation with Sherpas.
Yesterday one or two
Japanese with two Sherpas have successfully climbed Everest. Today one
Japanese climber has gone down in АВС, his nose is black color, it is
frost-bitten. Tomorrow many expeditions will start from ABC camp with us.
Wait for next messages ….
