Simone via satphone: “Hello. We did start only today
from BC, because the weather was so bad. Denis and I did start at 3 a.m. from
BC at 4200 meters and reached after 10 hours fighting camp II at 6000 meters.
We had snow till our knees and so we have to make all the track. Finally we
risked to not find the camp, because there was so many fog…. Ralf, Gerlinde,
Hirotaka and Boris did stop at camp I, because Ralf has been hid by one stone
on his leg and Hirotaka has problems with his stomach. So they will decide
tomorrow morning if to continue or not. Also Denis has some problem with his
stomach, but not so bad. Tomorrow morning Denis and I will decide if continue
to 7000 meters, where begins the rocky part or if stay one more day in camp II
for rest after this hard work in the snow… Bye till tomorrow, Simone”
