The K2 trekking is complete. The team had a marathon day by finishing the trek and then 4-wheeling for seven hours (!) to Skardu. Here’s expedition leader Garrett Madison’s update:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the K2 expedition team. Today is July 26th and we finished our trek out from K2 base camp to Askole and then we rode by jeep for seven hours from Askole to Skardu. We are very happy to be in Skardu and to have a nice lodge with a hot shower. And everyone’s doing great. We’re gonna take a rest day tomorrow and then fingers crossed for good weather, hopefully fly to Islamabad the following day.
