K2:
No further contact with Denis Urubko who is going for the summit. He left BC yesterday, without discussing summit-bid plan with expedition management. Denis is expected to have spent the night in C1 or above.
The team is ready to extend support, the solo climber may need at any point.
On the other hand, Poles continue with usual rotations and route fixing. "Conditions are good. Marcin Kaczkan and Maciej Bedrejczuk go to C2. Marek Chmielarski and Artur Małek are on their way to C1."

Some days I go solo climbing and think to myself, “Man, this is awesome! So light, so simple, so unencumbered… I love this!” Other days I’m out solo climbing and I end up thinking, “What am I doing here? If I were climbing with a partner I’d be doing a harder route, having more fun, and taking less risk. This is stupid. Am I not yet old and wise enough to have outgrown this activity?” Yesterday began as one of the former; Soloing up Aguja Guillaumet felt like a joy, and I marveled at how, despite a heavy pack and somewhat poor conditions, it felt so casual compared to my first solo of the peak, eight years ago. While traversing along Guillaumet’s south ridge I encountered snowy conditions, stuck ropes, and my heavy pack felt more and more like a burden… By the time I joined the Argentina route on Aguja Mermoz, a route I also first soloed eight years ago, the day had morphed into the second category, and I said to myself, “What am I doing here?” Then I rappelled off!  @patagonia_climb @petzl_official @lasportivana @ El Chaltén

Cold Hunter One  --  Lonnie Dupre on Mt Hunter
Talkeetna, Alaska - February 20, 2018
Dupre prepares for another winter climb.

Mount Hunter (14,573 ft) is the steepest and most technical of the three great peaks in Denali National Park. It is also known as the most difficult 14,000 foot peak in North America.

The first winter ascent of Mt. Hunter took place in March of 1980 by a three person team. No one has yet to succeed at a solo ascent of this mountain during the winter. That is the focus of this expedition.

Lonnie Dupre will attempt the first solo winter ascent of Mt. Hunter starting the end of February. With limited daylight and long nights at that time of year in the sub-arctic, much of the camping and some of the climbing will be carried out in the darkness of winter.

“High winds and deep snow will be big obstacles, but technical climbing in extreme cold poses the greatest challenge” - Dupre

Depending on what Dupre sees of this years snow and glacier conditions from the air during his fly-in to basecamp on February 27th the climb will either take place via the NW Basin variation to the West Ridge or Ramen Route. Note: NW Basin route is marked in blue and Ramen in red on mountain image.

Dupre will begin by shuttling supplies up the first 1500 feet of the mountain from advanced basecamp during the first few days of the project. Once in position and with a good weather forecast, he will make an ultra-light, week-long push to summit and back. A stable window of good weather is paramount to the success of the climb due the limited supplies. The expedition is expected to take 15 days.

The expedition is supported by PrimaLoft, Granite Gear, Mountain Hardwear, Voyageur Brewing, Hilleberg Tents, Globalstar,

This will be Dupre’s third attempt at scaling Mount Hunter.

Mission to Mermoz.
We decided we'd had enough of heavy packs on moraine and stormy tentbound days. Our solution was a sleepless single push on Mermoz, Fitzroy's neighbour. We left town after dinner and arrived at the base of the 18-pitch route just before dawn.
The first six hours of climbing was frozen choss covered in verglas and long shivering belays, we questioned our sanity.
On the sunny, windless summit ridge that was instantly forgotten - golden granite, spectacular views of Fitzroy, fast entertaining climbing, and the descent was a non-event.
After 30hrs on the go, we lay down in the forest for a comfortable bivvy near the road. This was rudely interrupted an hour later with hard rain at 5am, and the sufferfest resumed..

@austin_siadak during a little 24+ hour excursion into the mountains yesterday. After approaching through Paso Guillaumet and climbing up to the Brecha de los Italianos, we climbed northward along the crest of the ridge, making what I believe were the second ascents of Punta Kellogg and Aguja Kakito - relatively minor summits, but ones I had never climbed before. Spending most of the day on the crest of the range exposed us to cold wind, and I climbed all day with two puffies on, but the climbing was nonetheless quite enjoyable - mostly moderate and on excellent quality rock. @patagonia_climb @petzl_official @lasportivana @trailbutter

Wielicki for RMF FM: Bielecki and Urubko are at 6800 meters. Titanic work of boys below
1 hour 14 minutes ago
The participants of the Polish winter expedition to K2 reached the height of 6,800 meters, that is the last 8,000th of this season, which was not at this time of the year. Adam Bielecki and Denis Urubko will spend the night there. Tomorrow they are going to defeat another part of the road. "They will lead further to the Black Pyramid, they will want to" climb "and, if the weather permits, set up a tent for the Black Pyramid - for 7100, 7200 or 7300. This is the plan" - says RMF FM from the base for K2 the expedition leader Krzysztof Wielicki. "The other two teams worked in the wall, insuring to the second camp with ropes, one team goes down and the other tomorrow will be carrying equipment and a tent there" - adds Michał Rodak in an interview with RMF FM journalist. Poles will want to use two more days of favorable conditions. Later, the weather breaks out.

K2 Winter base camp 2018



On February 11, 2018, H-82 was requested by Inyo County Sheriff's Office to assist with a rescue of an injured hiker descending the Mountaineers Route on Mt Whitney. The climber fell approximately 200 feet down the route sustaining multiple injuries making him unable to continue his descent. The climber was located at approximately 12,600 feet elevation near Iceberg Lake. When H-82 arrived the winds were gusting in excess of 50 knots. Several attempts were made but conditions were too dangerous to affect a rescue. The injured climber and his partner did not have overnight gear and temperatures had dropped to 20 degrees (F). H-82 gathered equipment at Lone Pine to drop to the climbers for an overnight stay. However, when they returned to the scene winds had calmed enough that a landing could be attempted. H-82 was able to land safely in a patch of snow near the climber and transported the hiker to Southern Inyo Hospital in Lone Pine. His partner hiked down on his own.
Please be careful and always be prepared when taking on the challenges of Mt. Whitney and the Eastern Sierras.

San Jacinto Peak trails The trail north from Saddle Junction to San Jacinto Peak is mostly clear of snow. The only extended area of snow patches is north of Wellman’s Divide, between 9900’-10100’, but the trail is obvious. The Deer Springs Trail above the Fuller Ridge Trail has large ice/compacted snow patches, especially >9300′. Spikes are not required for ascending, but can be useful for descending for those unfamiliar with snow/ice travel. In Little Round Valley there continues to be about 90% snow cover under the trees, but the trail is obvious.
At San Jacinto Peak itself, there remains only 60% snow cover above 10,500’. The East Ridge (Ranger) Trail remains fully snow covered, with some drifts 6-10″ deep, but the trail is obvious (microspikes recommended for descending at least).
Deer Springs Trail Clear to Strawberry Junction (see above for details beyond Fuller Ridge).
PCT south from Saddle Junction to Mountain Fire closure Largely clear, small snow patches near Chinquapin Flat.
South Ridge Trail Clear from South Ridge Road trailhead to Tahquitz Peak, then passable with care to PCT (Chinquapin Flat). Between Tahquitz Peak and Chinquapin Flat there is continuous coverage of compacted snow that requires some care to traverse (microspikes are useful but not essential when heading north from Tahquitz Peak).
Devils Slide Trail Clear, a few tiny ice patches near Saddle Junction
Marion Mountain Trail  Clear to State Park boundary. Some small ice patches in State Park section to Deer Springs Trail/PCT, but spikes not required.

[Unclimbed] The northwest ridge of 6,083-meter Kangchung Shar in Nepal (the arête facing the camera) has been climbed several times, starting in 1984. But the very steep, 1,000-meter face to the left has no known ascents. Britons Paul Schweizer and Simon Yates approached Kangchung Shar in October 2016, hoping to find the continuous ice lines that Yates had photographed earlier. But an unusually dry post-monsoon season had left the face "exceedingly lean," and the Brits moved on to another climb. Photo of the upper wall by Paul Schweizer.

Five parties climbed the Via dei Ragni on Cerro Torre. There is quite a lot of ice and rime, the last pitch required quite a lot of effort including a pendulum. At least five teams climbed Cerro Fitz Roy, four via the Supercanaleta, one via the Afanassieff. A couple of teams climbed Pilar Goretta. The teams that went to Pilar Rojo on Aguja Mermoz retreated a couple of pitches shy of the Argentine route due to ice.
