As the K2 team continues to trek out, Garrett checks in from Khoburtse camp on the Baltoro:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the K2 expedition. Today is July 24th and we trekked down the Baltoro Glacier from Goro 2 (4285m/14,058ft) to Khoburtse camp (3827m/12,556ft). We had a nice day. It was beautiful weather, great views! The team did excellent but we did have a little surprise here in camp. Right before dinner there was a small landslide. A glacier lahar must have broken loose in a small lake up above and so we saw some rocks and mud come down which was exciting but nobody was injured and no gear was lost. So, all’s well here. Looking forward to another great day of trekking tomorrow.
