Timo, Ngima and Pemba left at 4:30 am.
Towards the summit. They reached the summit at 10:00 am. we could hear shouts at the highcamp.

Timo: I was very Exhausted from the very beginning. legs were heavy and breathing difficult but with some strange strenght I kept on going. on the way. there was rock climbing,snow walking glaziers and huge 50 digry ice wall. the last hour was a very narrow ridge towards the summit with high falls both side. comeing down was as hard as going up. I could have never made it without the skills and help of Ngima and Pemba.
