This from Simone:

"Hi. Yesterday and today were special days.

Yesterday afternoon (29.05.04) when we were at camp 4, our friends told us, that Boris got lost and didn’t reach camp 2.

Denis and I thought that he is finished in a crevasse and so we planed to descend with the first light for help. But we didn’t want to not try summit, so we did at 9 p.m. for a night summit attempt.

While we were going up, we heard that Boris only got lost in the seracs and did at last find his way to camp 2. It became night and cold and my debilitated stomach began to rebel….. So at least at 7900/8000 at 11 p.m. and 1 ˝ hour from summit I have to give up my attempt….. Denis did good work and reached the summit with darkness and cold.

Ciao Simone"

First off, the Italian/Kazakh combo Denis Urubko and Simone Moro, along with Camos, climbed the North Wall on Baruntse, 7129m. They reached the Kali Himal (Black Summit) of Baruntse, also known as the North Summit at 7014m via a new route up the North Face. The true summit was left untouched due to hard wind. Next, Simone and Denis moved to Annapurna’s North Face. Denis climbed Anna to honor Boukreev's memory.
