January 8.- Climb to Camp 3 Berlin (2:30 hrs)
January 9.- Left the Camp at 6:30 a.m. in very windy conditions. Almost all the expeditions turned back, only Wally Berg´s team, Juan and I reached the summit at 3:03 p.m. (local time). We stayed there less than ten minutes because I was not feeling good and bad weather was coming. Back at Camp 3, 3 hours and 30 minutes later with a heavy storm behind our backs. That night we had to sleep with all our clothes on, we were not sure that our The North Face tent was going to keep us safe.
