With all of the team now back in base camp after successful completion of their acclimatization rotation, everyone is watching the weather and looking for that window for a summit attempt. Garrett checks in with today’s update:
Hello, this is Garrett calling in for the K2 expedition team. Today is July 12th, and we had a very relaxing day in base camp. Our climbers Victor, Rick and Louis, came down from Camp 2 today along with Sherpas Mingmar and Dawa. And our other Sherpas were able to fix lines up to Camp 4 today at the Shoulder on K2. So, a very productive day all around. Now we are all back in base camp resting up, watching the weather, and getting ready for our next move. All’s well here in K2 base camp!
