On our summit day though, we had temperatures of -35°C, less than 1m visibility, hail and a LOT of wind. Talk about bad luck. The days after that it only got worse as I heard. I only had cold fingers, but managed to control it by keeping my hands in my pockets.
But with less than 1m of visibility and that much wind, it wasn't safe to continue anyway. To be honest, I'm not sure I'll go back. I've been thinking about it and haven't reached a conclusion yet, but if all 7 summits are this crowded and especially polluted, I think I'll start looking for something else... .
