  Simone Moro Baruntse north side


5/1/2004: Hello (first call via satphone)

Denis and I arrived just now in camp 1 at 6200 meter. We prepared the tent which Denis and Boris took down for avoid to be destroyed by the wind and the snow. Today all the fix ropes were covered from half meter snow, only the fix ropes in the rocky part were free. Now Denis and I will try to continue a little more on the difficult rocky part and reach the snow part. 

(second call) Hello, here we are again. Now we three stay in tent, preparing food. Denis and I climbed 20 meters more and I think there are 20 meters more of very difficult climb for arriving on snow, but now there is storm. Tomorrow, if the weather want, we will continue. Follow us Simone & Co

5/2/2004: Hi friends, This night we slept very badly, because the 2 men tend is really too small for tree people. This morning Denis and Camos started to resolve the last difficult part. After very delicate rocky and mixed climbing now they are in snow at 6300 meters and Denis is crossing from left to right side. The wind is not so strong than yesterday, but it persist to blow. Tomorrow we want to start definitely to summit, but we are worried about the wind. Also we can't stay to long here in tend, because our gas is near to finish… Ciao till tomorrow, Simone & Co.
