Diary of the 7 Summits Club Manaslu expedition: snowfall forces us to change plans and to postpone a summit assault
22 September 2019, 18:39
September 22. Day 20 of the Manaslu expedition of the 7 Summits Club. In the morning we hardly dug up - the whole night it was snowing and by morning the whole camp was covered by 20-30 centimeters.
At breakfast we congratulated Luda Isakova - Happy birthday! And then we decided to wait with the start - hoping the snow stops. However, the snow kept falling. Moreover, it turned out that the fixed ropes were not fixed even to the Camp 4. The Sherpas team left in the morning, but turned around before reaching Camp 4.
Taking into account the absence of a prepared route and avalanche danger after snowfall, we decided to postpone the exit for climb for another day.
