C3 established, waiting for the summit push

Our plan for this climb up the mountain was to complete our acclimatization process and put ourselves in the position to have a try at the summit.  To do that, we wanted to sleep one night at 7000m and reach the next day around ...

Down to BC from 7000m after one of the windiest nights I've had in the Himalayas.Almost had no sleep. Dead tired. Photos/story coming soon.

With Pawel in C3-7000m on Kangch. Tiny litle tent, barely able to move inside, loads of condensation, soaking us wet. True masochistical.

Just arrived in C2 from BC.One umpleasant surprise among many: Sherpas from Seven Summit "borrowed" our stove for C3.At this altitude=crime.

Mountain conditions permitting we'll start for Camp 3-7100m the day after tomorrow. Luckily will then have our acclimatization completed.
