Hi, this is mBank Lotto
Annapurna South Face Expedition. Welcome from the Camp I. Yesterday we have
reached the place where the Sherpas put the tent. We have put the second one.

They had deposited the food in another place, lower then the Camp was settled,
so we are a little hungry, but today they will bring it to us. The weather is
beautiful, we can see the way which we want to go up, so we are very
We have a little trouble with
our cook’s assistant. He became ill and it’s possible that he will have to be
evacuated from the BC by helicopter. I am a little anxious about him...Good
bye... till the next call...Piotr Pustelnik

After Annapurna he is considering Broad Peak "via normale but I still

Piotr numerous times including

double boot has a PE thermal insulating inner boot that is coupled with
a thermo-reflective outer boot with an integrated gaiter. We used a
super insulating lightweight PE outsole to keep the weight down and the
TPU midsole is excellent for crampon compatibility and stability on
