Today the team rounded the corner between the Baltoro Glacier and the Godwin-Austen Glacier placing K2 in sight! The great weather allowed for amazing first looks at the expedition objective. Here’s Garrett with the audio dispatch:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the K2 expedition team. Today we trekked from Goro 2 (4279m/14,039ft) on the Baltoro Glacier up to just near Broad Peak base camp (4679m/15,351ft). It was a beautiful day, great views of the surrounding peaks. And we got a really nice view of K2 when we rounded the corner near Concordia. Everybody’s here doing great! We had a nice dinner. And tomorrow we look forward to making it all the way to K2 base camp.
