Everest. Alex Txikon: Were in Camp 2

Alex Txikon

Were in Camp 2 ar 6457! It was tough, the wind hit us hard hile we climbed with 23kg. load each. Mingma the Ice Doc. Turned around at Nuptses side while Pechhumbe, Norbu, Tenzen Lama, Oscar and I pushed, jumping crevasses, toward the Valley of Silence.

Its crazy, theres only five of us half than on my previous attempts on winter Everest! We struggle for every meter we gain. Yet, we dont lose hope for a summit chance. For now though, lets see if we are able to keep fixing the route to C3 tomorrow.

  • Summit team expected in BC today
  • Ama Dablam. We're gonna stay here for the night
  • C2 reached on winter Ama Dablam disabled trekkers succeed on Kala Pattar
  • Expedition team settles down in Base Camp: Climbing action ahead
  • Alex Txikon flies to Nepal today
  • Oceans, roads and old friends sharing new projects
