The newest Vojvodinean
Expedition report is:
We are at camp C1 (7042m) at
April 22. The morning has been with very strong wind at the bottom of the rock
of North Saddle. Excluding of 500 m security ropes we have put and 10 m
aluminum ladder above abyss. The most problems are vertical frozen rock and
the very hard glacier.
The snow has started in the
afternoon. On the North Saddle at 7042 m we come in the evening. The tents
have been buried about 1 m deep because of the very strong wind.
Our plan is to go back to the
ABC (6400 m) to rest for a couple days tomorrow (April 23). After that we will
then continue our rise to camp C2 (7500 m).
Best regards of team from
Vojvodina is the northern
province of Serbia and Montenegro. It is located in the heart of the Balkans
in Southeast Europe. Although Vojvodina is flat, climbing has become a
tradition. The first Vojvodina climber to scale Mont Blanc was in 1924, since
then they have reached the summits of the highest peaks in South America,
Asia, Europe and Australia. The only peak they are missing is Everest and they
hope to climb to the summit in 2005.
The expedition is being
organized by the Mountaineering Association of Vojvodina. The members of the
team are as follows, Miodrag Jovovic, Milivoj Erdeljan, Goran Ferlan, Andor
Luhovic, Mirjana Vasut, Mirjana Stevanovic, Iso Planic and Hoselito Bite.
