Marek Holeček and Radoslav Groh are out of danger!Their last sat message:"Today we descended 1100 m in terrible avalanche snow. We got into good terrain now. Tomorrow perhaps we will fly by heli- monster to Lukla to make our way home from Kathmandu. Our friens have probably taken everything from BC, including food. Another frozen night ahead of us.Maara"Note from their support team: Tomorrow at 5 o'clock the helicopter will starts from Lukla and pick up the guys. They are exhausted but alive. Due to the amount of snow falling, it is not possible to leave BC in the usual way. All expeditions in this area are canceled due to the large amount of snow that fell in a short time.Kája"#montagnamagicaweb #baruntse #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism #climbing #Himalaya ...

Marek Holeček and Radoslav Groh , who yesterday summited Baruntse, 7129mt , by a new route on the intimidating NW wall, are trapped by bad weather, snow as for their last dramatic sat phone update:"White darknessWe are imprisoned here by the weather. Another bivouac on the ridge of Baruntse at 6900 m. It is snowing, it is blowing and there is white darkness all around. We would need 3 hours of good visibility and we would be safe down. We will try to descend at night. It should snow until Saturday. I will send current messages as long as the phone battery works.Maara"Fingers crossed for their safe descent.(ph Baruntse WNW wall, Google Earth/2nd pic probably from Marek via sat)#montagnamagicaweb #baruntse #alpinestyle #alpinismo #alpinism#climbing #Himalaya ...

Marek Holeček (2 time Piolet d'Or) and Radoslav Groh, strong Czech climbers, tackled the most impressive climb in Himalaya of this year.They reached the top of Baruntse North West Wall, 7129 Mt, by new route, alpine style.But after 6 bivouacs they still have to descend to safety.Best wishes to these great explorers and true alpinists Here the sat comm from Marek,today:"Hell on top.We crossed the new NW wall with Ráďou at around 16:00 and a couple of minutes later we crossed the top of Baruntse. We didn't take photos, we didn't show any joy, and we kept going until hellish weather allowed us to give up. The sixth bivouac was somewhere around seven thousand[meters]. We relaxed in the wet evening since we are very tired. We'll wait and pray hoping weather will improve and we can see the descent to the valley for a while. We have enough of that!Maara"(ph Marek ,Baruntse)#montagnamagicaweb#himalaya#baruntse#alpinestyle#alpinismo #alpinism#climbing ...
