Winter Nanga Parbat Expedition. Daniele Nardi from Base Camp
Few days ago we sent a couple of questions to Daniele Nardi after having got his message that heavy snowfall buried C3 with all equipment recently. Yesterday we’ve got his reply.Anna Piunova, Mountain.RU: Daniele, it seems that you have to decide right now to abandon your project or keep going, the situation with buried C3 is very disappointed.
Sure was hard for me and Tom to accept that a lot of snow covered and have been the reason of lost camp 3.
We did not expect so heavy snow fall so we left the equipment into a crevass on 5700m. That's the only possibility to fix a camp in that area so we were forced to fix the tent there.
That's why the snow has not only covered the crevasse but also go more high... We could find everything but we are not sure it's a good idea now to loose all the power to do it. Fortunately our moral is high now and we are ready to go and climb again and we have enough equipment to continue. Only something I asked to my wife to send from Italy and some Italian food.
So at the end, for his health, we decided together it’d be better for him to go home.
After the heavy snowfall something has changed inside of him.
More than one times he said "I don't want to loose my life on this mountain" so what exactly happened in his mind and soul I really don't know. He came here like a climber not like a porter so I respect always the decision of a climber if continue or not a climbing.
