The international expedition team have arrived a few days ago at the base camp of Nanga Parbat , the team comprises Daniele Nardi (Italian), Tom Ballard (British), Rematullah Baig (Pakistani) and Karim Hayat ( Pakistani). The team is really enthusiast and they are not wasting their time at the foot of the Nanga Parbat.
Yesterday Daniele Nardi and Tom Ballard arrived at camp 1 . This is the communication received from the seasoned mountaineer: ” It was a beautiful climb, we immediately found the track in the middle of the glacier, the weather is good and physically I feel great. However, I will have to go down to the Base Camp to complete the acclimatization and take other material for the preparation of the upper camps “.
Meanwhile, today the two Pakistani mountaineers, Rahmat and Karim , thanks to a better level of acclimatization, will try to reach camp 2.
It seems that everything is going well under the Mummery Spur.
