Charlie here at K2 base camp; still waiting for good
weather. We climbed to 6400 meters on Broad Peak on
July 9th with hopes for a summit push. Unfortunately
we got hit by a storm early morning on July 10th.
The weather didn't improve, so we returned to base
camp later in the morning.
On July 11th all
Broad Peak and K2 expeditions celebrated Aga
Birthday. Aga Khan
is a highly respected religious leader in the Baltro
region. The large feast was prepared by the cooks of
all expeditions. Afterward all the expeditions and
L.O.s showed off their dancing moves.
Well now it's a
waiting game at base camp. The weather forecast
isn't too promising! We hope to go back on Broad
Peak tomorrow. We heard the German Broad Peak
Expedition may start there summit attempt tomorrow,
as well. The must leave base camp on July 21st for
their journey back to Germany.
