It’s all on foot from here! Careful not to wake other team members, K2 expedition leader, Garrett Madison quietly calls in this early morning expedition update from the last town, Askole, Pakistan, before the trek begins on foot this morning.
Hello this is Garrett calling in for the K2
Everest[it’s early] team. We are in Askole (3040m/9,974ft.). We had a great drive by jeep from Skardu to Askole yesterday. It was a very scenic jeep ride, very rugged with some narrow river gorges. But we made it to Askole, had a nice dinner, and setup our camp. Now we are getting ready today to head off towards our first day trekking to Jhola (3151m/10,338ft). Everyone’s doing great. We’ve got good weather here and we are looking forward to getting the trek underway!
