Latok I. It's been another day. Sasha Gooks is still one at the height of 6200 m on latoke. The weather was gone yesterday. Helicopters all day stood at the starting position, the rescuers were waiting for the go, but not rained.
From the food, the sleigh has a half of the snickers. He's got gas. Less than 1 % of the battery charge on Rockstar (the device through which the link is maintained with it).
In order to take it off the wall, you need a perfectly clean sky and a lack of wind.
Then the helicopter will be able to fly as close as possible and drop the longlajn that Sasha will have to catch, buckle up and fly to base camp.
It's a mega-difficult task for everyone, for the pilots and for him himself.
Sanya is on the mountain for 20 days, from the moment of the break, it's been 18 days when they and Sergei Glazunovym have been putting heavy things in a high-Height Camp at 5512 M, taking a stock of products
Three days, after the death of serëži, Sasha is trapped in a snow cocoon, so he calls his parking lot. He managed to pave the tent on a tiny shelf.
Here he is waiting for help.
The weather is promised tomorrow, but if there is at least a small window today, try to throw it away (food, gas, satellite phone).
4:30 am (2:30 in Moscow): Mount a, visibility no. Next weather check at base camp and connection with pilots at 5:30 (3:30 am on Moscow). The result is the same.
Plan for today: at the slightest clarification, helicopters fly to base camp and make zabrosku. The Pilots will try to fly as close as possible.
If there's a window, the body body will be lifted today.
Improving the weather tomorrow. Helicopters will arrive with some fuel supply and stay on the base to not miss even a tiny window.
