A few weeks back I posted about a Polish climbing team that was going for an winter ascent on Nanga Parbat. Today we get word from MountEverest.net that the team has reached basecamp and are in the early stages of preperations for the climb. They are reporting quite a bit of snow already on the ground, and it’s been so cold (-20 degrees C at Night) that they have begun using their high altitude boots to keep their feet warm, and with more than a foot and a half of snow already on the ground at BC, it makes you wonder what conditions will be like when they start to work their way up the mountain, and eventually the summit.
