7/09 - Arrival at base camp (2500m), and short trek around the valley.
8/09 - Hike up to high camp (3800m) to acclimatise and cache gear. Return to base camp.
9/09 - Back up to high camp to settle. Very high winds , increasing through the day.
10/09 - Pinned down by a storm, winds so strong almost impossible to stand!
11/09 - Winds lessen slightly, acclimatisation climb to Lenz Rocks (4600m).
12/09 - First summit attempt. Turn back just shy of Lenz Rocks due to increasing einds and decreasing visibility.
13/09 - 2nd summit attemot. Much harder than expected. The mountain goes on and on forever, and even the flat summit plataeu was really hard because of the altitude. Great climb.

My mother had just died and my sister came along to our base camp as she was too scared to stay in the valley. We flashed it, not really acclimatising properly. Neither of us ate a thing all day and it beat the hell out of us. I sprayed the snow with yellow bile for much of the way down... nice! Before we set off, a Russian felt it wise to tell us 7 people had died on it the week before - cheers.

Walked up from the valley. Long, hot slog. Three different camps then summit night. Left at 3am in howling blizzard. Summitted in glorious sunshine and walked all the way down the same day.
