The Mountain Madness K2 2002 Expedition!

July 1, 2002: Christine and Charlie here...

We just returned to base camp after spending three days climbing on K2. On June 28th we climbed to our stash at 5900 meters and bivied there. The following day we continued up the face in marginal weather to 6400 meters. The snow conditions were fairly good. We pitched our tent on a small ledge and settled in for the night. The next day was snowy and windy with occasional periods of sunshine. We climbed a bit above camp to scout out our proposed route, which looks challenging but relatively safe and fun. We spent another night at 6400 meters and returned to base camp the next morning, July 1st.

We plan to spend a few days at base camp resting and getting organized for our next objective, a climb of Broad Peak. Weather permitting, we anticipate commencing our climb within a week. We hope to climb Broad Peak in a single push. This should give us adequate acclimatization for our proposed climb of K2.
