Just a brief update today on the ongoing winter climbs in Pakistan today. The news from Nanga Parbat is that the weather has taken a turn for the worse and some of the teams are temporarily moving down to the village of Chilas to escape the conditions. If you want to know what it is like there on the mountain, check out this video posted by Daniele Nardi, who is climbing with Elisabeth Revol. It gives you a pretty good indication of what conditions are like on one of these big peaks in the winter. It’ll also make you appreciate your warm bed and comfortable couch.
