The K2 team caught their first views of Broad Peak (8051m/26,414 ft), K2’s neighbor and the world’s 12th highest peak from their camp in the middle of the Baltoro Glacier. Garrett Madison, expedition leader, calls in with today’s dispatch:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the K2 expedition team. We had a great day trekking from Urdukas camp (4034m/13,235ft) to Goro 2 camp (4285m/14,058ft) here in the middle of the Baltoro Glacier. Wonderful weather today, sunny and great views of Masherbrum peak, Gasherbrum IV, the Trango Towers, even Broad Peak – we could see the summit of today. So just a spectacular day with amazing views all around. Looking forward to another great day of trekking tomorrow, up towards Concordia. Everyone’s doing very well on the team, having a wonderful time and we look forward to another beautiful day ahead!
