After a few days of poor weather, the team was excited to welcome sunshine back to base camp! The team continued to prepare by distributing dehydrated meals and other materials, as their summit push is right around the corner! Expedition guide, Terray Sylvester, checks in with todays dispatch from K2 base camp:

Hello! This is Terray calling in for the Madison Mountaineering 2022 K2 expedition – it’s July 15th.

Today, we had a lot of sunshine here in base camp (4968m/16,300ft) which was a welcome change! Took showers, did some laundry – we also distributed dehydrated food, oatmeal, and other material for our summit push which is coming up soon. And we soaked up some vitamin D!

It’s just about dinner now. We’ll head into the dining tent soon and meanwhile, we’re enjoying some nice alpenglow on the summit of K2, which we haven’t seen for a few days.

So, everyone’s in good spirits and healthy here! We’ll be in touch tomorrow.
