And here is the team: Irena Mrak, Tomaž Goslar, Mojca Švajger and me.
We dedicate this climb to raise money to rebuild Nepal.
Irena, Mojca and Tomaz are my good friends from Slovenia. We met first time in Base Camp Makalu and became good friends right away. And because of the circumstances at Makalu (see notes under the folder "expeditions": Makalu) we also teamed up there and helped each other up the mountain.
It all ended dramatically; Irena had to be evacuated and was literally dead when she arrived Kathmandu. But now she is up climbing again.
Irena and Mojca have climbed Nanga Parbat's icy Diamir face in alpine style among many many other extreme achievements. And I am so happy to team up with them now for Diran!
