The Mountain Madness K2 2002 Expedition!

Dispatch Three: June 20 - Base Camp

We arrived at k2 BC yesterday, after a nice trek up the Baltoro Glacier. We have found the local Balti people to be very friendly and helpful - no hassles so far. We did a recon to the base of the SSE spur this morning (June 20), and have decided to attempt a route up the south face, following the Polish line or perhaps another variation nearby. Tomorrow we will climb to approximately 5800 meters on the Polish route, to assess conditions and to acclimate. We are both feeling great and highly motivated! The weather has been unsettled for the last several days, but overall it seems to be ok and now improving.
