   Nanga Parbat 2005: Everest Summiter IVAN VALLEJO RICAURTE more...

Saturday, Dear friends of Ecuador and the world.

I send warm greetings from this special and cozy BC.  Yesterday, Friday night, I was back after installing equipment along with other friends of the other expeditions, on the passage between C1 to C2.  The location of C2 in on the edge of an impressive ridge, but there is other place for it!  For now I sent a short summary of what happened in these three days and I promise to send a chronicle of my ascent from C1 to C2.  I am taking a well deserved rest today and I will start again on Monday, as if opening my office, with the job of continue installing camps.

Thursday, June 23: Thank GOD, a wonderful weather, the mountain is still getting cleaner and avalanches fall during the whole day but without compromising our ascent route.  At six in the afternoon Hassan and I (a Pakistani carrier of our expedition) left from BC to Camp 1, with the purpose of leaving from there to C2 in the early morning.

From here, at the other side of the Equator, a big hug.
