We established five high camps:
Camp 1 (5100m): Our high-porters supported us up to camp 1
which is based on the Diama glacier just 200m above Camp 1 (4900m) from the Kinshofer route (normal route). It contained a big depot for food, gas and also medical emergency equipment (Certec bag, oxygen).
Camp 2 (5700m): This camp is based at the upper end of the Diama valley just below Ganalo Peak. It served as small depot for food and was a place low enough to relax and recover there on rest days, that is why it is called "advanced basecamp" (ABC).
Camp 3 (6440m): This camp is protected from winds by a stable serac block. It is the first proper high-camp. A steep step leads up to it from the Diama valley.
Camp 4 (7180m): This camp is rather exposed and is located in the middle of the NW face.
Camp 5 (7600m): This is our last high-camp. It is located just below the very windy saddle between North summit and main summit.
