"...After 14 days of
spectacular trekking from Tumlingtar up to Makalu BC 5700 mtrs we are in
position to start the real climbing. The mountain and the route to the summit
are extremely beautiful, snow, ice and rock. Two days ago we had a praying
ceremony with the sherpas, and yesterday everybody were climbing above 6000
mtrs. The five members were in different condition regarding the
acclimatization, and today we all have had a rest day in BC.
Our crazy strong sherpas made
Camp1 (C1) on 6500 mtrs today, and tomorrow all the members are going up,
either to stay overnight in a deposit camp on 6000 mtrs or in C1. Some of us
are planning to stay in C1 for some days if the health is good, and then make
the way up to C2 on 7400 mtrs together with the sherpas.
The conditions of the route
are perfect, and the weather could not be better. We hope of course that this
will last for some weeks. Within the exp we are having an exciting time. We
are all five members very different persons coming from five very different
cultures. The quality of the exp however, has been very high, and we have had
a great time with a lot of fun so far. Nothing indicates that this will change
throughout the expedition.
Right now I am longing for
two things. First of all for my family, my wife and children. And second to
climb Makalu to the summit after two years of planning and many years of
dreaming. This is all for now, next writing in our homepage is Pepino.
All my love to Eli, Lars,
Fredrik, Kaja, my brother Jon, my mother, all my close friends and all my
friends in the Norwegian Federation of Sports and Olympic Committee. Best
regards from Brit, Stian, Mick, Pepino and all the best from Sven..."
