(Newsdesk) Following days of hard work on the route and camping mostly in dug-out caves, Marek Klonowski aborted the climb 1st of February and descended taking C1 with him.
Tomek Mackiewicz left camp 2 (6100 m) and climbed up. The mountaineer reportedly has 4-6 meals and gas in both C2 and C3 locations and a sat phone with him.

Joel Wischnewski is in camp 2. He reports a mountain completely transformed by recent snowfalls. The climber is suffering from Crohn disease and not feeling too great but holding out for weather.
Following rest in Chilas Ian and David will be returning to BC. Zoli is going home to check up on his feet. Ian and David are determined to stay on the mountain even until the beginning of March if needed, says the expedition report.
Elisabeth Revol reports strong winds and lots of snow forecasted high up on Nanga until February 6 with a possible window in 6 days. The team is holding in BC.
