Good news from K2 base camp! The team was able to hold their Puja Ceremony today under beautiful, clear-blue skies where they ask the mountain for safe passage for all of those climbing to it’s upper reaches. Shortly after, the team did some ice climbing in the neighboring Godwin-Austen Glacier. Expedition leader, Garrett Madison checks in with this brief dispatch as the team prepares for their first rotation in the coming days:
We had our puja in base camp (4968m/16,300ft) today, it was sunny and warm for the ceremony. Then we did some training after lunch on the ice. The weather is improving!
