In today’s update, Garrett outlines the upcoming summit attempt plan:
Hello, this is Garrett calling for the K2 climbing expedition team. Today is July 13th, and we had a nice rest day in base camp. All of our Sherpas have come down off the mountain from carrying loads and fixing ropes to Camp 4 on the Shoulder of the Cesen route. And our plan is to review our oxygen systems tomorrow and start packing up for our summit attempt. Our plan is to leave on the 16th of July to head up to Camp 2 on the Cesen route in hopes for a potential summit attempt on the 19th of July. Everybody’s doing great here, we’ve got nice weather in base camp, and we look forward to another great day tomorrow.
