Thanks for your patience, I didn’t have access to the Internet in the last ten days.
I’ve completed my acclimatization and now descended to the village Tengri at 4,200 m. for the rest and recovery.
The last days were very intense. I moved to the Advanced Base Camp (ABC) at 6,400 m., and climbed twice to the North Col of Mt. Everest at 7,100 m. I stayed both times at the North Col for a night. The weather was not bad. Usually the first part of the day was perfect, and the second part snowy.
Yesterday after a night at 7,100 m. I climbed about 200 m. up. My intention was to reach altitude of 7,500, but the wind was so strong, that it was sometimes difficult even to stay on feet under the wind gusts. Finally the weather took a turn for the worse. Just in time for me. I need a few days for recovery, and my acclimatization is completed. I descended back to the North Col, and then to the ABC. I had a cup of soup at ABC, and finally decided to descend to the Base Camp. That was another 25 km distance. I started at 1 pm and arrived at BC in the darkness. The last one and a half hour I moved under the moonlight. I didn’t turn on my flashlight since the trail was visible enough, and the view was fantastic under the light of moon.
Today morning a Jeep drived me to Tengri. I will stay here for 2-3 days. The bad weather forecast is actually longer. The plan is to wait for the good weather window, and then I need 5 days for the summit push.
