Last days of May 2010. The city of Krakow tries to survive a flood. All classes at the University are cancelled and I sit in the Institute of Sociology grading students’ achievements. At home, a backpack packed for my expedition to Nanga Parbat is waiting for me.
Denali: - 40ºC; hurricane winds; numb hands and frozen fingers. We are on the top of Denali.
We departed Warsaw on July 12, 2002. Our expedition team included Marcin Kaczkan and Piotr Morawski (me).
