snowfall in the hell

we had been another time on our big wall. this time we changed our climbing tactic.
no houlbag, no sleeping bag, no cooking stove, no food… but... no success. the rock wall was transformed in a hell of ice and snow. we had to return at once. the snowfall was so heavy, that the tent poles were broken. we past the night reinforcing the tent; and all the time avalanches sound around us. it falls a half a meter fresh snow. we couldn’t find our tracks coming back to base camp. so crossing the glacier had been not an easy game. now we stay in base camp and our time is running out…
