5/25/2004: Today is the second
and last day of rest and wait here in base camp. Tomorrow at 4:30 I and Denis
will start and go directly to camp 2 at 6000 meters. The day after we will
start to open our new route on the rock bastion and the days after directly to
the summit through that line.... Today Gerlinde, Ralf, Hirotaka and Boris did
start at 6:30 a.m. to reach camp 3 at 7000 meters on the normal route.
Tomorrow they will try the summit push. The clouds are already in the sky but
the visibility at present (9:50 a.m.) is still good. Tomorrow should start the
3-4 days good weather and we hope that the forecast will be without
mistake.... Ciao, Simone
