Monday 6th september, ABC-BC, 6400-5200m
« on: Sep 12 2004, 17:57 »

Today Mark & I are descending to BC as well. It takes about 3.5 hours to get
back to Interim Camp (IC), where we spend almost an hour resting. The air is
already thicker here and the next section from IC (5800m) to BC at 5200m
takes only about 3 hours more. But just before camp we have to crosss the
river which has swollen in the afternoon rains. 5 minutes before camp, it
takes us 45minutes to cross it without getting everything wet..

It's the first time we see Boris again; he looks a lot fitter fortunately
and is looking forward to going up. He has hiked up the scree hills next to
BC to about 5900m until the bad weather forced him down. He slept in IC,
meaning to continue to ABC, when the 4 from ABC came down, so he joined them
down. They had trouble finding the way across the glacial river and had to
find their last part back to BC in the dark. Werner stayed in IC and also
missed the way across the next day; he waded across, but thanks to the
advice of a crow he met (!?!) all went well...
