  Mt. Everest 2005: Waldemar Niclevicz: 34th day of the 10 Years of Brazil on Everest Expedition

34th day of the 10 Years of Brazil on Everest Expedition

Base Camp (5,400 m)

The bad weather continues

Dear Friends!

After seven days of literarily being resting, I am happy that my throat is practically recovered, I feel ready to climb again.

Irivan and I discussed the numerous possibilities with our teammates, and the Spanish and the Italian are also very excited for the next climb to mount our camp 3 (7,300 m) to spend the night there, closing the acclimatization process which will give us conditions to be ready for a possible attack to the summit of Everest.

We are all ready to climb tomorrow to camp 2 (6,400 m), but unhappily the weather forecast is not good.  It has snowed everyday, during the afternoons, and from Wednesday the weather could be worst, according to the forecasts.

Since it is a lot of time to be stalled for a week, we will climb this Monday, with the intention of spending two nights on camp 2, perfecting our acclimatization, and it would be ideal to install camp 3.

Today we had one of the least expected visits here at base camp, a group of Brazilian trekkers leaded by the famous guide Manuel Morgado, from Latitude.  I remember that in 2000, when I was in the final attack to K2, he also showed up at base camp, there in Pakistan, and wished us good luck by radio, to all of us who were in camp 3 (7,450m), two days later we could climb K2.  We will need his luck wishes again this year.

Here, the expectation is big among the 23 expeditions.  The month of may is getting closer and the weather should stabilize.  We hope that this is a good season so that a lot of people could make their dream come true, to get to the Top of the World.

Look at today's pictures, how our Sunday afternoon was, snowy and cold.

A big hug,

Waldemar Niclevicz
