Location Scouting – Austrian Hut

Phurba Tenjing Sherpa, Josef Einwaller and team went for location scouting to find the best place for the Austrian Hut bivouac. They identified a possible spot at 5050m on a rocky step with about 200m height which is safe from avalanches.  The path to the spot is now secured with ropes.

Next steps are organizing the transport from Kathmandu to the site and preparing everything for construction.
