Today we had our Puja ceremony in K2 base camp. We raised Tibetan prayer flags over our camp and after the ceremony had a fun song and dance with our Nepal Sherpas and Pakistani high porters. After the Puja we donned our boots, crampons, and climbing harness, then practiced the technical processes for climbing on the Abruzzi ridge, which involves climbing fixed ropes over steep rock, snow and ice, and then descending these lines.
The weather is improving and the forecast looks promising for the next week, so we are planning to make a move up to the higher camps in the coming days. Everyone is doing well and we are happy to be settled into our K2 base camp!
