THE COUNTDOWN HAS FINISHED! CALA CONQUERING THE SUMMIT

After a long wait the big day has finally arrived for our ambassador Cala Cimenti …

«Finally we are, trying to conquer the summit. We will begin our journey in the early hours of tomorrow morning ” Cala writes, after the long period of acclimatization to the base camp and waiting for better weather conditions. The mission of Cala and his companions, the Russians Anton and Vitaly, is  to reach the summit in maximum 4 days The 6 members of the expedition of the well-known Nepalese mountaineer Nirmal Purja will follow this starting group from the base camp, which will continue in its goal to reach the umpteenth peak and add a piece to its project to climb 14 eight thousand in just seven months. A group departure due to the considerable amount of snow that has fallen in recent days, a team begins with an attempt to join forces to trace the deep snow that persists from Camp 3 (6742 meters) to the summit ( 8216 meters).

Cala and the Russians, on the other hand, have another ambitious goal …trying  the descent with skis? We are all waiting anxiously top know the line …

Good luck Cala, we’re all with you!
