Agna is alone in the Base Camp for the moment and will be reporting and coordinating the teams bid for the final summit push, likely to happen on 28th midnight.
The Polish team survived the worst of the poundings of the deadly Karakorum on February 22nd when they remained steadfast under a fierce snowstorm with wind speeds soaring to 200km/h. One of the tents was completely leveled while the mess tent encountered damage and Agna had to jump in for a neatly done sewing job to get it back in shape. The team reports that the intensity of the storm actually moved the MI17 helicopter wreck to some 20m.
Both International Team and the Poles have already decided to summit the peak in collaboration. If successful, this will be the first winter ascent of the Gasherbrum-1 also known as the “Hidden peak” in the Gasherbrum Massif and the second winter 8000er in Karakorum.
