Bibler tent

Lashing and howling winds at night. Started by 0730 hrs. Winds made it difficult to walk, especially the ridge to 1C. Took us 3 hours to reach 1 C.

Saw the big Italian tent fallen down on the glacier. One area was to be crossed carefully because of a landslide. Seb and gang overtook us near the Russian tents. Reached BC by 1500 hrs. The Austrian couple had arrived.

A Bibler tent was erected for me. Feeling tired but otherwise okaye.  Went to Seb’s tent. Had some French Wine with him.
