K2 team tucked into Camp 3

K2 Camp 3 as seen this evening

Audio dispatch via satellite phone this evening from K2 Camp 3:

Hey this is Garrett calling in for the K2 expedition team! Today is July 20th and we are up at Camp 3 – tucked into our tents, just finished our dinner. We had a big climb today from Camp 2, up over the Black Pyramid and on to the glacier here at Camp 3. Some fairly thick clouds as we arrived into camp. We could see a little blue sky and we are hoping for continuing improving weather for the next couple of days. Our rope team [garbled] has been up high working the last two and half days on fixing lines up through the Bottleneck, the Traverse, and they are making good progress but still a lot of hard work to be done. So we are hoping their last day is a very productive one. The weather looks good and everything is on track. Our plan is to move Camp 4 tomorrow. Everyone is doing well and we are enjoy the views here at Camp 3. We will check soon. Thanks.
