After yesterday’s big initial push up from base camp, the K2 team has been resting up at Camp 2 today and will move up to Camp 3 tomorrow. Garrett fills us in on the details:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the K2 climbing team. Today is July 17th, and we decided to take a rest day here in Camp 2 on the Cesen route. The weather is great! Litte bit of uncertainty regarding the rope fixing up high, so we decided to wait a day, give ourselves a little more time, and also rest up from the big push we did yesterday from base camp up to Camp 2 (about 4,500 vertical feet). Our plan is to climb up to Camp 3 tomorrow. Everybody’s doing well. We’ll check in soon. Thanks!
