Audio dispatch via satellite phone this evening from K2 Camp 4 (8,000 m / 26,250 ft.):

Hello! This is Garrett calling in for the K2 expedition team. Today is July 21st and we are up at Camp 4! High camp on K2! We has a great day climbing from Camp 3 up to Camp 4. We had some rest here, eating some dinner, getting ready to go for the summit tonight! Our plan is to leave tonight about 9:00 PM and hopefully reach the top sometime tomorrow morning around 7:00, 8:00, 9:00 AM. Everyone is doing great! Today our rope fixing team made it to the summit of K2 along with some other climbers. So we are feeling really good about the route conditions. The weather looks good tomorrow and fingers crossed for good climbing. We’ll check in soon. Thanks!

    We met Greg Maddision who enjoyed a meal with us at our tent at one of the transit camps. I think it was the one before Gore1. (KRAMBLERS FROM THE UK )

    I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE SOME PHOTOS OF YOUR SUMMIT CHALLENGE PLEASE.
