From the base camp, Rafał Fronia Reports to Home website!The beginning of the summit attempt doesn’t look too well. Weather conditions on slopes of the mountain have changed dramatically. At the moment in C2 there is wind blowing with 100 km/h, but it’s not the worst news. Upon reaching C2, the assault team found a tattered tent. Situation in C2 looks as follows: Artur Hajzer, Ali Raza and Ali Sadpara try to put up a tent that they have brought; Robert and Krzysiu occupy the remains of the tent using it as a bivouac shelter. A hard night awaits them. Weather forecasts for the following days introduce changes into the speed of wind. Although optimistic news from Piotr are quite good, Karl Gabl writes about an increase in wind speed – Tuesday 70 km/h, Wednesday from 20 km/h it is supposed to increase to 45 km/h and on Thursday – over 70 km/h. Currently, Marcin Kaczkan who is in C1 experiences similar conditions, a tent has been seriously damaged. We are waiting for more information from the mountain. When it comes to our set off tomorrow – we are sitting and thinking; weather forecast for Thursday takes away our chances to attempt the summit, but the motto of our expedition is: Hope freezes last. For now, we have decided to set off as a support group to rebuild C2 and bring up a new (already the third) tent and the most necessary things. Keep your fingers crossed, we grab the anemometer.
