Snowstorm hits Nanga, Simone towards Manaslu

Winter Himalaya is a lonely place.
(By Raheel Adnan) Strong winds and heavy snow have hit Nanga Parbat as all climbers are stuck in BC. Last week, Alex Txikon, Daniele Nardi and Ali Sadpara were successful in setting up C3 at 6700m. Iranian climbers spent a night in C2 (ca 6000m) and deposited further gear just below the camp. It appears that the teams are ready for a summit push once weather window arrives. Elsewhere, Simone Moro and Tamara Lunger have started the journey for Manaslu expedition.
