Campo 2 Manaslu 6.285 m
C2 INSTALADO” UNA AVALANCHA CAUSA HERIDOS HACIA EL C3

Hola amig@s, ya estoy en el C2! esperaba una jornada más larga, pero me he encontrado genial y en tres horas y media ya estaba pisando un loma nevada sobre un gran serac, donde hemos instalado Moisés, su Sherpa Bemba y yo una tienda donde compartiremos noche.... See More
September 17th
Campo 2 Manaslu 6.285 m
C2 installed " an avalanche causes injured towards c3

Hi Amig@S, I'm already in the c2! I expected a longer day, but I found myself great and in three and a half hours I was already stepping on a loma Nevada on a great serac, where we installed Moses, his sherpa bemba and I a Where we will share night.

Field 2 is quite protected from avalanches, and talking about these, just when I arrived at C2 I have crossed with several sherpas and an Argentine who went down from field 3. In fact they have not been able to arrive because they have suffered an avalanche , caused by themselves as they explained to me. Two sherpas have been buried almost completely and the Argentine who believes has a broken rib, and one of the sherpas an ankle. They descended the two to hard sorrows helped by their companions. Seen the unstable of the route to the c3 we will go down to the base field tomorrow.

Today's route was between serac and serac, huge ice moles that in some steps were threatening. In the 500 meters of elevation there were several pretty vertical steps and a couple or three stairs to be able to pass deep cracks (guy waterfall type). I'm going back to climb to weatherizing. As I find myself, the next time I get up will be to go straight to summit. I arrived at The CB on September 14th and it's only been 4 days but my sensations are fantastic.

Inyo Search and Rescue was called out to the North Fork of Big Pine Creek yesterday (9/3/18) around 4:00pm for a subject with a leg injury. It was reported that the party was approximately 0.1 miles up the trail from the overnight parking lot. A group of six Inyo SAR members departed to the trailhead; one hasty team member ran approximately 0.3 miles up the trail to the subject and found him sitting in the trail with a very swollen left ankle.
The party had been hiking out around 3pm when the subject slipped and fell, injuring his ankle. When the rest of the SAR team members arrived shortly after, the subject was moved into a litter and carried to the Big Pine Pack Station (approximately 200 yards), where Sierra 35 took over care of the patient.

Well... I'm Back. I wasn't feeling to good before this trip. Too much computer and not enough outside. In general questioning a lot lately as my 2 months in Peru comes to a close. The world is out there waiting for you if you get up off your ass and go get it! 
.
Ausangate trek by bike. Highly recommended! 4 days - 7 passes over 16,200ft (5,000m). It will be a while before I process everything photo-wise and mentally. If you ever want to feel as you have left the planet without leaving earth.. go to Peru. This place is unworldly

Entering another world at 5000m in Peru. The diversity of landscapes around Ausagante was ridiculous: rainbow colored mountains, up-close views of glaciers and 6000m peaks and vistas that changed continuously with the weather.
Temperatures at this elevation are extremely dynamic - from below freezing in the morning to above 25C during the day with bouts of rain, hail and sun in between! It certainly kept things interesting as I sweated and shivered my way around #bybike #bikepacking #peru
