Route through G2-icefall is open

This morning at 4:00 am I started togther with our HAP`s Ali, Yusuf and Said
to search for a route through the icefall. By 8:00 we reached an altitude of
5550m where we set up a tent. The icefall this year is quite tricky, a lot
of open crevasses. The route so far is marked with 50 bamboo wands.
Tonight at 1:30 we will start again and set up camp1. The AMICAL members
will join us and carry some equipment to our tent at 5550m. Because it is so
hot one has to start with the descent by 8:00 am. By 11:00 am the snow is
getting very soft. Today I had three crevasse falls on the way down to BC.
