Budik nas vzbudil v 8, ale jeste jsme si trochu polezeli a v 10 vyrazili s tim, ze dneska by jsme meli jit asi 7 hodin. Na zacatku jsme trochu bloudili spolu s dalsimi, az jsem zeptal nejakeho chlapika a ten nam ukazal kudy. Zase nas cekal vystup do sedla k laguna Schmoll, odtud pak jeste dalsi kratky vystup a potom uz dolu. Na zacatku sestupu jsme narazili na 3 Izraelky odpocivajici pod jednim z obrich balvanu, ale jen nas uvideli, ptali se na telefon, protoze jedna z nich spadla a poranila si koleno. Byla cela pomlacena, ale nic zlomeneho. Z meho telefonu se volat nedalo - "dekuji debilni Vodafone". Holky si uz zavolali o pomoc predtim, ale protoze tam cekali uz asi hodku, chteli se zeptat jak dlouho jeste. Rekli jim, ze vrtulnik je na ceste, jen musi sejit dolu - asi 300 metru prudkeho sestupu, ktery byl narocny i pro zdraveho. Ja ji vzal bagl, a ona zkusila jit sama - hodne pomalu...Mezitim dorazili dalsi turiste a nakonec i zachranari. My jsme se zeptali jestli nam budou jeste potrebovat a oni, ze uz ne. Vydali jsme se proto dolu a kdyz uz jsme meli sestup za sebou, najednou zacali
kricet, ze potrebuji pomoc. Tri chlapi jsme se sebrali a vyrazili zase zpatky tentokrate prudce stoupat, kdyz jsme tam dosli, nakonec potrebovali jen jednoho...Mezitim pristal vrtulnik dole v lese. zachranari nakonec usoudili, ze bude lepsi jit nahoru a zkusit pristat s vrtulnikem mezi skalami - to se asi na ctvrty pokus podarilo. Nase parta 6 lidi co cekali s holkama tak mohla vyrazit. Celkem jsme se zdrzeli asi 3 hodiny. Nastesti jsme nasadili docela rychle tempo a stihli se dostat do dalsiho kempu za svetla, jen jsme trochu zmokli po ceste. Mista na kempovani tu bylo spousta a my si nasli super misto pod stromy, navic jen kousek od jezera Jacob.
The alarm clock woke us up at 8, but being tired we slept a bit more and at 10 we were ready to hit the road knowing that today we have to manage just 7 hours or so. At the start we couldnt find the right way, but i did ask some man who showed us where to go. Ahead of us a very steep climb to laguna Schmoll, very tiring, from there anothe one getting over the top and then just descend. At the beginning of the
descend we saw 3 girls from Israel resting by a huge boulder, but when they saw us they did ask us if we have a phone to call a rescue service cos one of them had a ugly fall, all bruised and hurt knee not able to walk. But i cant use my phone for making calls - "thank u bloody Vodafone". Girls already called someone just needed to check when they will come. They had been told to go down cos its better for a heli to land. I did take her bag, she slowly walked down, but the descend was difficult for a fit person so it was really slow. Meanwhile other tourists arrived and later rescuers showed up. We asked we our help was still needed, but the answer was no. We started to descend with others and being nearly at the bottom, they started to shout that they need us to help them. So we - three guys went climbing up back been told at the top that just one is needed...just mental. The heli landed down in the valley waiting for instructions. The rescuers decided to climb up rather than down and try to land
with the heli there amongst the rocks that they managed on 4th attempt. Our group of 6 set off to our todays destination - refugio San Martin. We were delayed by 3 hours, but cos we walked very fast in the end we managed to get there at 7 just getting a bit wet cos it started to rain. The campsite was great - we found a lovely spot under the trees close to lake Jacob.
