  Nanga Parbat 2011_2012: Simone and Urubko Acclimatize at Camp 3

The North Face Athletes, Simone and Denis, are still in very good shape and the weather is very favourable. This is very positive for their acclimatization.

In a direct message from Simone from Camp 3 – 6600 meters, he said:

“The weather is still favourable so tomorrow we will try to climb up even further. We think we can reach 7100 meters or even more if we manage. Afterwards we will come back to basecamp to fully recover. “

While the boys are up at camp 3, the Matteo (The Team Photographer) and the Pakistan crew are at base camp.

Here are some photos from the base camp kitchen.
