Just as we established our first serious high camp the monsoon hit us in full force. Our camp was in a mixture of fog and rain the entire day. Even at an altitude of 5065m the temperature at night did not go below 8°C.
The temporary snow line is at around 6100m. We don’t give a damn – tomorrow morning we start for our first summit attempt. Lars and Patty went up to 5800m this morning to try to get a good luck at the glacier tongues. Stay tuned for results!
In the short minutes without fog or rain, Lars and Fabi explored nearby boulders. Wether bouldering at 5000m is a good idea or not is another question…
This picture drawn by Hannes shows Fabi, Nils and Jonas in the base camp tent, making the best out of the weather.
