  • Giripremi's Lhotse - Everest 2013
    will start the summit attempt and if weather conditions remain favorable they will reach summits of Mt Lhotse and Mt Everest on 16th May Duringthe last week the entire team has recovered well Today Mr Reinhold Messner veteran alpinist and renowned mountaineer visited Giripremi s Base Camp He wished the entire team all the very best for their plan to scale the two eight thousanders on the same day After meeting Reinhold Messner the entire team is fully charged and they are now motivated and excited for the final push 2 May 2013 Camp 2 to Camp3 Movement between Camp2 to Camp3 spotted from Camp2 on 1st May a day prior to the Giripremi s planned movement on this route At 7400M Camp 3 is located on steep slopes of the Lhotse face The route to the camp3 from camp2 traverses in the upper western cwm to the base of Lhotse face for couple of hours and then steep climb over the Lhotse face till Camp3 This face rises at 40 and 50 degree pitches with occasional 80 degree bulges Climbers and porters need to establish a good rhythm of foot placement and pulling themselves up the ropes using their ascenders Today the team set off towards the Camp3 at 8 00am It was very windy since morning The weather prediction reported winds upto 70mph As the team reached the base of the Lhotse face suddenly the wind started blowing at much higher spped Due to the recent snowfalls the entire valley was covered with soft layer of snow The wind started blowing this layer making it difficult to see and to breathe Still they continued to move up the mountain They crossed a big bergschrund at the base of the Lhotse face After the bergschrund it was steep climb over hard ice At this point the winds worsened making toes and fingers of the climbers to freeze The team had to abandon any further movement up the mountain and return to Camp2 Nevertheless the team had reached to an altitude of 6900M before turning back Tonight the team will stay at camp2 and will return to Base Camp tomorrow morning Giripremi s Lhotse Everest 2013 expedition team help to reveal life at extreme weather conditions on Mt Everest Samples collection for microbials analysis at extreme altitudes Due to the extreme weather conditions on Mt Everest temperatures well below freezing point low air density and extreme winds practically the life is not possible on the mountain The existance of the dead bodies of the mountaineers for so many years emphasizes the above fact But scientists believe that there are certain microbials even present at these extreme conditions On 17 March 2013 researchers reported data that suggested microbial life forms thrive in the Mariana Trench the deepest spot on the Earth Giripremi will help scientist to reveal this mystery by collecting soil samples from these extreme mountains Today the team collected soil samples from above camp2 area Tomorrow the team will move up to camp3 and will stay one night at camp3 before returning to base camp Base Camp to Camp 2 Today Giripremi s Lhotse Everest 2013 team started from basecamp at 3 30am Crossing the tricky sections at Khumbu icefall they reached Camp1 at 9 00am Ganesh negotiating a tricky ladder in the Khumbu icefall as Ashish and Anand are waiting for their turn Anand on yet another ladder in Khumbu Giripremi s Lhotse Everest 2013 team at Camp1 from left Bhushan Anand Umesh Zirpe Ganesh Ashsish In the western cwm Mt Lhotse in the middle and Mt Everest seen towards left Camp 2 6500M The team reached camp2 at 2 00pm The team setting up tents at camp2 The team will stay tonight at Camp2 Will go for height gain tomorrow and return to camp2 and finally they will shift to camp3 on 2nd May 29 April 2013 All set for camp3 After a well deserved break for three days Giripremi s Lhotse Everest 2013 team is all set to move up the mountain tomorrow at 3 30am This time the team will hit camp3 stay overnight at camp3 and will return to Basecamp The plan is as follows 30th April Basecamp to Camp2 6500M This time the team will not stop at camp1 and will directly go to camp2 1st May Camp height gain26750M 2nd May Camp3 7400M stay 3rd May back to basecamp This will be the last and most crucial movement on the mountain before summit attempt During this movement the team will reach as high as 7000M After this movement the team will prepare themselves for the summit bid Giripremi s Lhotse Everest 2013 expedition team members praying to Shivaji Maharaj before their crucial movement up till Camp3 26 April 2013 Back to BaseCamp After spending a night at Camp2 the team today returned to BaseCamp All the team members had been to Camp 2 in last years expedition Pune Everest 2012 hence it was relatively easy this time for them to adapt to the conditions up there at camp2 Although the snow conditions were different this year because of the recent snowfall The team started descend at 7 30am and they slowly traversed down through the western cwm untill Camp1 The team spent some time at camp1 before they continued further down to through Khumbu icefall It was almost five hours untill the entire team reached back to base camp Everyone is fit after the movement and noone reported any symptons of altitude illness After touching 6500M 21325ft the team will need some recovery before they set out for next action on the mountain Camp3 During this phase they will focus on hydrating themselves and carb loading On 30th April the team has planned their next breakthrough to camp3 25 April 2013 Spring has still not arrived While all of us are struggling with the heat of midsummer the Lhotse Everest 2013 expedition team describes Camp2 as Spring has still not arrived Climbers approaching Nuptse Corner just ahead of Camp1 Today morning the team started from camp1 location at 7 30am The route between camp1 and camp2 was more walk than climb The camp 2 6500m is located in upper western cwm The central section is cut by huge lateral crevasses which restrict the entrance into the upper Western Cwm Many long ladders are used to cross the crevasses The snow covered bowl shaped slopes surrounding the Western Cwm reflect the solar radiation warming the valley basin despite its high elevation Some of the most difficult days on Everest are in the Western Cwm when on a sunny windless day it is desperately hot and has been known to reach temperatures up to 35 40 C Mt Lhotse center and Mt Everest Left overlooking the Western Cwm The team reached Camp2 at 12 30pm They pitched tents and called basecamp and back home through radio sets and satellite phone The route up north to the summit of Lhotse a high rising Lhotse face encompassing yellow band and the camp3 site below it was clearly visible throughout journey from camp1 to camp2 Due to the recent snowfall the entire basin is covered with a foot deep fresh soft snow making it difficult to walk on Barring few places where there is a danger of hidden crevasses the route is fixed with fixed ropes and few horizontal ladders to cross the crevasses the route is free walk Towards the end of the day the conditions were bit overcast with slight snowfall The team had early dinner at 6 30pm in a common tent pitched by sherpas and were into their sleeping bags before 7 30pm Tomorrow morning the team will go down to basecamp and will stay there until their next movement on the mountain Camp 1 Stay Today morning the team had early breakfast and prepared themselves for the movement of the day They put on inner layer of woolen thermals Intermediate layer on top of it and finally wind stoppers Like a seasoned mountaineer they were ready in no time with their snow shoes and harness on Everyone wore helmet and clamped headlamp on top of it Ashish and Bhushan clamped Go Pro cameras on their helmets Finally with their backpacks on all of them proceeded towards the chorten Few essence sticks along withjunifersticks were burning leaving their fragrance in the air The team prayed to the Goddess Sagarmatha for the success Warm hugs were exchanged with the fellow team members The team ready to move up the mountain Starting from left Ganesh Bhushan Ashish Umesh Kame Anand The team started at 5 30am from EBC through Khumbu towards Camp1 Roughly in half an hour they were into the core of Khumbu icefall where they put on the crampons on their climbing shoes Pulling the straps of crampons in chilling cold must have been an experience Walking on the crisp layer of superficial snow was comfortable but the team knew that this pleasure would not remain for long As the day progressed the superficial layer of the snow started melting exposing the soft fresh snow beneath Climbing on the soft snow was pretty tiring as the team had to put an extra effort to stamp on each step before moving ahead Crossing the ladders one after another and progressing pitch by pitch they reached to 5850M at 8 30am Team Member ascending tricky ladder in Khumbu icefall It was almost three hours since they started The team stopped for a quick bite After having boiled eggs which they carried from the basecamp sip of lukewarm water from their thermos was refreshing Soon they had to rush ahead because of the danger of movements of the icefall and risk of avalanches coming down the Lhola face After this point the climb was not stiff but the team had gained some altitude by then which was making the further movement strenuous This section was tricky as crevasses grow deeper and wider Also because of the recent snowfall there was danger of hidden crevasses en route Although the entire route in this section is fixed with safety ropes one has to be attentive all the times and pass the safety carabiner through these ropes Many Sherpas have lost their lives in this section due to carelessness Since they failed to snap their carabiners inside rope a little mistake while crossing wide crevasse over the ladder pushed them miles below the surface towards the end of narrowing crevasses Carefully and steadily the team reached to the camp 1 site at 10am where they pitched tents They cooked noodles using butane burners At 6100M Camp1 of the Mt Everest through South East ridge is located above Khumbu icefall and at the base of western cwm also called as valley of silence Camp1 is very unstable and dangerous place and climbers do not prefer to stay here It is very narrow section surrounded by high raising walls of Nuptse corner on one side and Everest shoulder on the other This will be the only night spent in the expedition on Camp1 In further movements the team will skip this camp and will directly go to Camp2 Camp 1 en route Everest from South East ridge Tomorrow morning the team will start early Will touch camp2 and return to BaseCamp This is an essential phase in climbing the mountain called as acclimatization 23 April 2013 Few More photographs shared from Everest basecamp Snow Clad Everest BaseCamp Satelite Tent design by Gypsy Tents Pune roofed by snow Indian tricolor alongwith Nepali national flag stand tall at the background Earlier this month movement in the Khumbu icefall captured from the BaseCamp The climbers set out for the climbing through icefall at the dawn and the route is seen as chain of headlamps progressing slowly but steadily Climbers negotiating a crevasse in Khumbu glacier using ropes and ladders Due to harsh weather conditions today the team is held at Base Camp and they have plan to move up the mountain tomorrow i e 24th April After continuous snowfall for past few days they are hoping for the favorable weather conditions during tomorrow s movement 22 April 2013 Icefall closed for any further movement It was 20th early morning the team was all set to move up to Camp2 through Khumbu icefall when they experienced heavy snowfall snow accumulating more than 2 inches forcing them to get sheltered inside their tents Since then the snowfall continued for last three days freezing all the movements up the mountain The v isibility is also reportedly low At the same time the lower regions of the Khumbu valley has seen heavy downpour Even Kathmandu reported heavy showers of rain All t he teams at EBC are eagerly waiting for the weather to better but the Indian Meteorological Department predicts no relief for themat least for next couple of days Usually last two weeks of April sees the substantial preparation on the mountain but this bad weather has certainly pushed the climbing calendar ahead by a week This can be a crucial factor in successful summit ratio this year On the other hand experts feel that this can be a favorable situation considering the rest of the season will see clear weather window Nevertheless Lhotse Everest 2013 expedition team is poised for the upcoming spikes of the climbing efforts p s After spending three days compulsory rest inside tents the team walked two hours down to Gorakshep where they spotted NIVEA Sun screen in a small store Climbers use sun screen lotion at high altitudes to protect themselves from UV rays NIVEA is official sponsor of the expedition 19 April 2013 It s time for some severe action After beating more than 50km over fifteen days and traversing up and down the altitude graph from as low as 5000ft to as high as 18000ft the team finally reached Everest Base Camp on 12th April 2013 Followed by some serious climbing through Khumbu icefall up to 19 193ft on 16th April and hike up to Pumori High Camp 18537ft on 17th April Ganesh taking a leap over open crevasse in Khumbu icefall Very sure he would have missed a heartbeat or two before his crampon brunched the rock hard ice on the other side of the crevasse But the team has not seen enough and some severe action awaits them as they will see cumulative climbing of over 27000ft and equal amount of descends too All this will be at extreme altitudes where human body can hardly survive on its own the altitudes where you can imagine yourself touching the passenger flights temperatures so extreme that they will see about 100 points travel on the Celsius scale terrain so extreme that they will see tones of tumbling icebergs to the crevasses miles deep below surface and emotions so strong that they will tend to swing them from the deepest of the nervousness to the triumph of the lifetime Now the expedition will attain an altogether different scale unparalleled to any other endeavor All this is due in next few weeks So stay tuned for more updates 8th April 2013 Dingboche The team at Deboche before starting the trek outside the hotel The team started trek from Deboche to Dingboche today morning at 7 30am Today the team will experience a sharp depletion of vegetation layer From the lush green jungle of fir juniper birch blue pines bamboo and rhododendron woods to scrub and alpine plant and finally bare rock and baron land Eventually the oxygen level in the surrounding will go down and the team will face the first challenge in the expedition to adapt themselves to the changing environment From here onwards the altitude will start taking its toll and the team will have to be very careful in selecting their course of action They will have to observe themselves very closely and monitor how their body responds to the changes An experienced mountaineer will not rush ahead without giving an opportunity to her or his body to adapt Entire success of the climb depends on this phase Climbers who push ahead in this phase most often pay a huge cost sometimes in terms of life Aware of all these facts our team also will move very slowly and spare more days before reaching the base camp After 15minutes from the start of the trek the team crossed a stream of Injatse Khola After this point they walked uphill to upper Pangboche where they visited Lama at Pangboche Monastery Pangboche is famous for the magnificent view of Mt Ama Dablam At this place you are very close to Mt Ama Dablam and the base camp of which is hardly two hours walk Magnificent view of Mt Ama Dablam at Pangboche village After a quick lunch of Dal bhat at Shomare the team started again Soon they reached flat section of Orsho After crossing Loboche Khola river they walked towards left until they reached the village of Dingboche Tomorrow the team will go for altitude gain on top of Nagarjun hill near the village and will spend one more night at Dingboche About Dingboche Situated at an altitude of about 4 530 metres 14 800 ft Dingboche is a popular stop for trekkers and climbers headed to Mount Everest Ama Dablam or Imja Tse Parties will typically spend two nights in Dingboche for acclimatization purposes The village relies heavily on tourists with lodges and tenting areas comprising most of Dingboche The Imja River flows directly east of the village A helicopter landing pad is located just west of the Imja River Stupa at Dingboche with Ama Dablam in the background 7th April Deboche At Tengboche the team met Team met Carlos Soria from Spain who has climbed 10 eight thousanders and attempting Kanchenjunga at age of 74 Today the team climbed above the ridge near Tengboche for acclimatization The mesmerizing view of the mountains around including Everest Nuptse Lhotse
