Dear EverestNews.com, Gnaro
arrived at Nanga Parbat BC yesterday together with 4 spanish climbers member
of Carlos Pauner's team.
He will share his climbing
permit with "Al Filo de lo Imposible" team and probably tomorrow 25th June he
will start to go up till the CI first where he will spend the night and the
day after reaching CII.
It seems that the weather is
becoming good and the temperature going up. The BC now is nearly cleaned of
snow but the mountain still white. He said that the trekking is the best he
has never done and he is very enthusiastic about the lots of marmot that
running all around the BC.
At the moment the way is
already fixed till CII.
I'll enclosed a picture of
the BC that he send to me today.
I will keep inform You about
the progress. Ciao, Idel
