Due to miscommunication between myself and the graduation committee at at the Technical University in Delft, the expedition to Shishapangma has left to Tibet without me...
Preparations were perfect.
Timing seemed superb.
Graduating now, in stead of climbing, was the only way out of the depressing process I had to cope with last years. At the first week of May 2002 I succeeded in climbing this personal mountain, though it's a hard time seeing my teammates making progress on the slopes of the mountain I'd be on too.
