Dear EverestNews.com, Gnaro just
phone me and inform that 2 Korean climbers LEE HYUN JO 34 years and KIM CHANG
HO 39 years they made the traverse of Nanga. In fact they repeat the Messner
way on the Rupal Face and come down to Gnaro's BC. He makes the picture of Mr.
Lee because the other climber stop at Camp IV resting.
Also the 6 Japanese, the
french girl and her boyfriend together with another french guy reach the
summit today of the normal route that Gnaro will try next week. Ciao Idel
Dear EverestNews.com, Monday
11th July Gnaro together with 3 others members of Filo de lo Imposible team
left BC for CII. The way to CII was very hard causing of the snow
precipitations of the last days. Once they arrived they have a surprise to
find only one tent as the other probably fly away for the high wind. So they
contact the other expedition at the BC asking the permit to use one of their.
In the afternoon the weather
change in worst, start snowing.
Tuesday morning Gnaro alone
even if the condition wasn't good went to the lower CIII at 6.400 meters where
he left his material necessary for the summit push. In the afternoon he
reached CII again where he slept with his friends. Wednesday morning they all
come down to BC under lots of precipitations.
Up in the mountain at the
moment there are one French girl with her boyfriend, some Japan climbers and
one French boy waiting do to their summit bit.
At the BC the climbers are
tired to wait the window of good weather as is more then one week that the sky
is cover most of the time.
Hopefully from Sunday
something will happen..... they all hope this!
Ciao to everyone. Idel
Earlier Update: Dear EverestNews.com,
Saturday afternoon Gnaro with the 3 girls of "Al Filo de lo Imposible" team
and Josu left BC for CI. Here they all spend the night and the next morning
they reach CII at 6.200 meters. The way from CI to CII was very challenging
but the good weather conditions and the high temperature help all of them to
make the space to fixed their tent on the sharp ridge over the Kinshofer wall.
The day after they come down directly to BC where they will have some day rest
before starting next going up to the mountain. In the meanwhile 2 climbers and
one mountain guide reach the summit.
He said that the way up in
the mountain is very technical and You must be very carefull... Idel
