source reports to EverestNews.com that Andy Parkin and Victor Sanders will
to make history on
Shishapangma! Both Andy and Victor are both very
experienced climbers in the
Himalayas. They are expected to attempt a new
Shishapangma this winter; therefore it appears they will
not initially, at least, be climbing the same route as
Simone Moro and his friends...
Stay tuned this might get interesting...
Brief information on
Simone Moro team is below with more to follow...
"In a few
hours I will fly to Kathmandu. After 3 day they will also arrive in Nepal 4
climbers from Poland. Our aim is to realize the first winter ascent of
Shishapangma 8027 meters.
The team will
be of 3 climbers + one other base camp manager. We will attempt the Wielicki
route. He had planned come with us but at the last minute he
had something come up... Also my climbing partner
Denis Urubko wanted to come but he did not get funding.
It will be a
difficult and extreme climb but I’m not looking for easy life and climbs
because in that case “I have many way to find
different fun and relax….”
Ciao and keep
in touch, Simone
