Ascent Trip Report

We were a group of 8. On the first night attempt, we turned back due to strong wind. On the second night attempt 6 of us reached the summit. The night was calm, the morning was great. After 8 am the weather started to deteriorate, which prevented the two last persons from reaching the summit. I was the 6th person of our group to reach the summit on the day. Walking down was a hell; visibility was less than 2 meters. Walked down and collapsed every few meters. From 5200m I used a scooter to go down; storm was coming. First time I used crampons and ice axe.
