http://desnivel.com/expediciones/simone-moro-y-tamara-lunger-abandonan-el-campo-base-del-manaslu-y-se-dirigen-al-valle-del-everest    Snowed in and flown out


Not funny anymore
I spoke this morning with Simone about our future plans and he says to me: “Whether we get out of here or not, is now also an issue of safety!”
And I just said to myself, no, we are safe here!!
After our second shoveling session around the tend, where the walls actually are more than 3 meters high and we are struggling to clear the snow around the tend, we went into the tent.
Suddenly we heared a bang and both of us didn’t know what was going on. Simone jumped to the exit and went out, and there already came down the snow from an avalanche. I didn’t know of which dimensions it would be and I also didn’t know if I should stay in the 2meter dome (tend), or get out. Luckily it was just more dust, and all was well. I really was a little bit frightened and helpless for a moment.
And now I am also of the opinion that we should get out of here as soon as possible. Troubles is that we can only reach the safe valleys if we take the helicopter, walking down would be suicidal, because the way down into the valley to Sama is very steep.
I really wish for us now only better weather, everything else is a minor matter.

  Skyline Trail
Skyline got a pretty good snow-dump the other day. Ellen, Marilyn, Craig, and a hiker we invited to tag along, Michael from Ohio joined me for the romp from the desert floor to the tram yesterday. Wildflowers are beginning to show, and even a few cactus blossoms were open. The first patches of snow appeared before Florian's rest stop. There was full coverage by the time we got to Flat Rock, and by the time we got to Coffman's Crag we were post-holing a bit. We enjoyed perfect breezy conditions, much appreciated by us polar bears.
— with Ellen Coleman and Marilyn Tomsha.

http://www.alexhonnold.com/now/

My foot and Alex Honnold near the top of the Huber-Schnarf route, mid transition from crimping in TC Pros to swinging tools in Baturas. I made Alex climb Torre Egger in a day for his first foray on the gnarly side of the Torre Valley, and Alex made me simul-climb wet 5.10 with an alpine pack on. We pushed each other out of our comfort zones, but kept it safe and had a good time. And I can't help but share the wise phrase of some hardcore Slovenians here in El Chalten: "No summit, no party." ‪#‎vidapatagonia‬ @patagonia @lasportivana @petzl_official ‪#‎nosummitnoparty

Cerro Torre - Directa de la Mentira
Colin Haley and Marc-André Leclerc, the two fittest and hungriest men here at this moment, "the unstoppable two", just did the first "complete" (bottom to top) ascent of the north face of Cerro Torre climbing El Arca to the "Col de la Mentira", to then climb six new pitches up a beautiful line parallel and to the left of the north ridge, joining back with El Arca on the last four pitches of the north face, reaching the Via dei Ragni and the summit. They called their line Directa de la Mentira. This comes barely a week and some days after they completed the first ascent of La Travesía del Oso Buda. They are on fire!!

According to Christophe Espareil, the director of the resort, the skiers were local and had been warned of the avalanche risks. He said the victim had hit obstacles during the slide. The avalanche risk was 5/5 in the morning dropping to 4 at the time of the incident.

Russian team on Rupal side of Nanga Parbat has reached 7150m on Schell route. They're eager to resume the lengthy ascent to summit via Diamir face, tomorrow.
Tomek Mackiewicz and David Gottler were almost at the same point last year, when bad weather pushed them to retreat. This post from last year discusses the time required to reach summit from 7150m.
