A cold Christmas Eve in Broad Peak, Manaslu and Nanga Parbat’s BCs.

2008, December 24
Artur, Robert and Don are having a cool Christmas Eve – in Broad Peak’s BC! Jacek Teler’s team on Nanga Parbat and the Czechs on Manaslu prepare for a similar celebration.

Simone Moro and Denis Urubko are the only winter 8000ers climbers who will have a proper Christmas dinner – at Simone’s place in Italy – before heading for Makalu.

Broad Peak: Men in BC!  broad-peaks-bc-new

Artur Hajzer’s wife Isabella broke the news to ExplorersWeb yesterday: “Just landed in BC,” she wrote. “BC is set up! More news soon.”

Denis & Simone toasting to winter Makalu on Christmas Eve

Before departing for winter Makalu, Simone Moro is celebrating Christmas Eve at home in Italy – with Denis Urubko as a guest. Denis will then return to Almaty, with a brief stop-over in Spain on Christmas day. He won´t be at home for long though: The two climbers are expected to arrive in Nepal next week.

Other teams on winter 8000ers: Manaslu and Nanga Parbat

The Polish winter expedition on Nanga parbat is fighting bitter cold and loads of snow in BC, currently pitched at 4,470meters on the mountain’s Diamir side. Leader Jacek Teler reported on -13ºC.

The Czech team on Manaslu latest reported from BC. The climbers had retreated there due to worsening weather conditions. Previously, they had set up c1 and fixed some ropes across a maze of crevasses and seracs on the way to C2 – not yet set up.
