Expedition news "Manaslu 2017 – 7 Summits Club".


In the last 3 days our team finished acclimatization. Knowing that bad weather begins from the evening of 20th of September and in 3 days more than 1 meter of snow will drop out, our team has carried out by accelerated tempo acclimatization. We have spent  a night on the notorious Camp 2, at 6300 m which has claimed the lives of 22 people in 2008. We spent a night with avalanche equipment in tents. Also we have estimated way from the Camp 1 to the Camp 2 as very dangerous. It passes on icefall where places through cracks have thrown ladders. Now we have an evening. In the base camp there is pouring rain. We pray for snow because  it is not so wet...
