Current Nepal Time
Simone Moro attempts Nanga Parbat (8125 meters), K2 (8611 meters) and Broad
Peak (8047 meters) all in two months!
2003 now heads to
Nanga Parbat and Broad Peak both via new routes!
"We will try Nanga Parbat in one
day, from base camp to the top. We'll run up, bringing only a light emergency
kit with us". Franco Nicolini and Mirco Mezzanotte, from Northern Italy, are
about to fly Himalayas for their expedition. But it is not a routine one.
Both Nicolini and Mezzanotte
are well known in the European Sky-racer Championship entourage: they summited
Cho Oyu in 2002, but could not reach their goal of an extra-speed ascent. But
they're both determined: Nanga Parbat will allow them to go faster, and hit
2003 Summits: 6/17/2003:
Denis Urubko, Dima Chumakov, Maksut Jumaiev,
and Vassilly Pitsov summited Nanga Parbat. More attempting!
