I owe you the passion for mountaineering ...
Carlo Mauri, great alpinist, explorer, photographer who first climbed Gasherbrum IV with Walter Bonatti in 1958, gifted his own Camp "signature edition" Piolet ⛏ to his friend Alfonso Bernardi, my grandfather. ...
The news is that Seven Summits Treks agency communicated that
material and equipment, are already at the K2 Base Camp. Food, gas, kerosene oil, ropes and everything else the team needs.
The leader of the expedition is Chhang Dawa Sherpa of Seven Summit Treks. The Catalan Sergi Mingote will lead the team at altitude.
Let me say that this news open a debate :
infact, to record an expedition as "Winter Expedition ", every single phase, including BC establishment, SHOULD BE DONE during the proper Winter Calendar (from 21th Dec).
K2 is the last peak to be climbed during Winter, and the task is huge, logistic is a nightmare, organizing equipment loads under snow difficult and so on.
But in my humble opinion, equipping all the BC during Autumn isn't a good start, if you want to enter in history as the K2 first Winter climbing.
Debate is open.
What do you think about it? ...
