C.A.M.P.

Good news from Nanga Parbat, where C.A.M.P. athlete and experienced winter Himalaist Simone Moro has reached 6400 meters on the huge Rupal face. He plans to gain the summit via Schell route, that was first climbed by an Austrian team in 1976 crossing the left side of the Rupal face and the upper part of the Mazeno ridge.

Simone and his mates Emilio Previtali and David Göttler are now in the base camp at 3600 meters waiting for weather improves. The team left for Himalayas one month ago; they arrived at the foot of Nanga Parbat on last 31 December and during the first night at the base camp the temp dropped to -25°C, showing immediately the extreme conditions that the mountain had in store for them.

Nanga Parbat (8125 m, Punjab Himalaya, Pakistan) is the 9th highest mountain in the world. It was attempted by Albert Frederick Mummery in 1895 and by several strong German expeditions before the Second World War. The legendary Hermann Buhl completed the epic first ascent in 1953, reaching the summit alone after 17 hours of strenuous climbing.

Fifty years later, in 2003, Simone Moro climbed a new route on the Diamir face. Then, in 2011-12, he made his first winter attempt with Denis Urubko. Therefore Simone knows very well Nanga Parbat and having also completed the first winter ascents of Shisha Pangma, Makalu and Gasherbrum II he has good chances to achieve another amazing success.
