Madison Mountaineering guide Conan Bliss reports in on the team’s first rotation progress from Camp 2 on the Cesen route:
Hi! This is Conan checking with everybody out there in cyberspace for the Madison Mountaineering K2 expedition. Today we had a stellar move up to Camp 2 on the Cesen spur. Everybody’s had a good dinner and are tucked into their tents tonight. Spectacular day today with an unbelievable view over the Karakoram, Concordia, and the Baltoro Glacier. We are planning on staying here tonight. Tomorrow should be a mellow day, also should be nice weather. I will check in with you then.
