CommentsSetting off or Filk´s heaven laugh – Expedition Garhwal 2006
9 years ago with Filk (Filip Šilhán), India / Garhwal - Mt. Meru 6 310 m.
Wet and cold like in a bad movie. Drenched to the bone and freezing for couple hours. I am lying on a snow island next to another desperado – daring person. He is like a grub wrapped in a wet and slowly freezing tunic which was quite feathery and warmth providing sleeping bag just 18 hours ago. The snow seized to fall and the drift and freeze got more powerful. Time’s passing very slowly. The wall changed in a white hell. We got ten lengths of rappelling towards the glacier plus a quick run up to the place where we need to store our stuff. The grub slowly moved and I recognize Filk despite his face stigmatized with pain and suffering. “Let’s get the outta here!!!” we both are screaming. It is kinda Russian roulette. But we decided to say good bye to slow dying in an “ eagle’s nest”.
