SMS at 1:45 Italian time: “We are starting
now. There is sun and the wind is acceptable.” Call at 7 a.m. Italian time:
“I’ on the summit. I reached just now the
Khali Himal (not
Khalima) at 7041 m. Denis is coming soon and also Camos will reach the summit.
The wind is very strong. The ridge to the main summit seems not difficult, but
the wind is so strong, we risk to be blow away…. Today is the birthday from
Camos. I’m very satisfied. We hear us again, when I’m back in the tend. Ciao”
9:30 a.m. Italian time: “ Hi. We are back in tent and everybody is fine. Today
it was really cold, also if it was a sunny day, but the wind was so strong.
All three we reached the summit of Khali Himal after 36 pitches and we will
dedicate this route to Patrick. From the summit the view was great, only the
wind was disturbing so much. The route is very difficult especially for the
steepness and the high difficulties. Tomorrow we will have one hard day more.
We will reach the saddle and from there continue to the first part form our
route and than go to base camp. We have ropes enough: 200 meters of fix ropes
I take from the last part of the route and bring up, 50 meters of Kevlar and 3
tomorrow, Simone & Co.
I will send you wonderful pictures.”
