The shots are done on saturday 8 of June. Mostly you see tourists and climbers going up to the 4800m high refuge from where I film. Wake yp a midnight to attempt the summit. The wind was still so strong, very hard to keep balance. I reached 5200m then the other client I was with was too tired to the guide has no choice to go down with both of us. One group of 2 made it with their guide to 5700m but came back very exhausted and frost like polar explorers. Wind and light snow, continuously created block of ice all around gear, face, headlight. 2 groups of guides/clients didn't even bother to start the attempt, they spend all night in the refuge and went down sunday morning. I had enough energy to continy safely up (and back down) to 5500m perhaps. So I had quiet an admiration for the 2 clients who made it to 5700m but they admitted they pushed too far.
