Winter Broad Peak: Too difficult crevasses at 7800 m

Posted: Feb 17, 2013 07:04 pm EST
(Newdesk) Adam Belecki and Artur Małek turned back today at 7820 m due to too difficult crevasses and they sleep in Camp 3 at 7000 m, reported the team on Facebook. Maciej Berbeka and Tomasz Kowalski sleep at 7400 m tonight and will try to summit (8047m) tomorrow. It is still low, reported the team, but the weather is improving which gives them a chance.

Amin Ullah and Shaheen Baig left part of their load where their reached on February 16th. They are back in Base Camp with expedition leader, Krzysztof Wielicki (member of first Winter Everest/8000m summit.)
