Charlie reporting from K2 base camp. Yesterday we
climbed a line to the right of the original polish
route on the south face of K2. We left a tent, food,
fuel and gear at 5700 meters. The snow conditions
were fairly good and allowed rapid progress.
Today we are
resting at base camp with beautiful sunny skies.
Tomorrow we plan to climb to about 5900 meters and
bivy. The following day we plan to climb to 6400
meters and bivy again. From here we hope to do a
recon of the route above before returning to base
We are having a
great time with everyone at base camp. We are
acclimating well and feel strong. Looking forward to
the climb ahead!
