The expedition led by Alex Txikon is back at base camp. #Manaslu2022 continues.After going down to Samagaun three weeks ago due to adverse weather and a strong avalanche danger, the group has climbed the mountain again; everybody can’t wait for going up. The next few days they will make small incursions on the mountain to check the situation , they will process the data obtained and assess the strategy to follow. Before starting to ascend Alex and the team need to prepare the base camp as best as possible. “The avalanches have left the camp quite damaged - says Alex - and if we had stayed here we would have been in serious danger. I always say that having a good camp is one of the keys to success and we will focus on this in the coming days".
Let's discover the tents that Alex and the team have for the Base Camp and upper Camps.
COLLE SUD TENT - FOR THE BASE CAMPColle Sud is an expedition tent with stable, robust geodesic structure, perfect for the high altitude weather conditions and the strong wind. Can sleep up to 6 people.
As many other expedition tents, it is designed with double entrance, ventilation sleeves and outlets, auxiliary vents to guarantee the ventilation and liftable snow flap.
PILIER 2 TENT - FOR UPPER CAMPSPilier 2 is the perfect tent for use at high altitudes with maximum performance in terms of wind resistance.
The system of external poles means that set-up is quick in cases of bad weather and prevents the inner tent from getting wet.
CAMPO BASE TENT - FOR BASECAMPCampo Base is a geodetic tent that has been specially designed for base camp or canteen tent use, or even for logistic support.
It is 2,30 m heigh and it's perfect for himalayan expeditions, the "house" of mountaineerers and sherpas.
SNOWBOUND 2 TENT - FOR UPPER CAMPSSnowbound 2 is the 2 person tent built to provide top performance when it comes to wind resistance, thanks to a system of reinforcements on the perimeter structure (RB) and to its geodesic shape.
This tent is the ideal shelter for professionals facing expeditions at high altitudes or on glaciers, in base camps or areas with lots of exposure to wind and extreme weather conditions.
