AMICAL opened way to Camp 1
climbed to our depot tent at 5550m and stored equipment.
The 3 HAP`s and I tried to find a way from 5550m to camp 1 at 5920m. The
main goal was to avoid a track too close to Gasherbrum V (avalanch danger).
We found a way through the glacier at least 500m away from G V. By 8:00 we
reached the site of camp 1 and set up a tent. At 9:00 we startet our descend
down to basecamp. We reached the upper edge of the icefall at 11.00. It was
already extremly warm, the snow was wet and soft. After 4h in knee deep snow
conditions and 7 crevasse falls we finally reached basecamp.
