Update K2 base camp 7/3:
I have been getting
up at 7.30. My day was not very exciting. The only thing I did was washing
clothes before lunch. I am pretty well again except my Throat is still hurting
a little and I am coughing a lot. My stomach is well again. Chad and Rory have
started their ascent from the camp at 7400m at around 8.00 in the morning.
When the weather allowed it we were watching them. They continued their ascent
until 13.00 and reached an altitude of about 7650m before descending. The
weather has been moderate all day, sometimes sunny, sometimes a few
Today nothing really happened. Before
lunch it has been snowing a little. At 12.45 Rory and Chad returned from Broad
Peak. They are pretty fit despite of their big effort to climb the mountain.
This morning my tent collapsed again under the loads of snow.
During the morning the weather improved. Before lunch 2 Yaks arrived in BC,
one for our Expedition. We will eat parts of them for dinner. After lunch I
have been going to Broad Peak Basecamp with Peter. The Austrian mountain
guides have all been sleeping, but we ran into Stangl Chri [Christian
Stangl] . He accompanied us to K2
Basecamp and will stay for dinner.
7/6: The weather is
still bad today. It has been snowing during the night. Before lunch Kobler
arrived asking whether his people could use my tent at 6500 for one night.
They are ascending and want to try the summit in the next days. I allowed it
to them. Tomorrow we also want to go to 6500m to try the summit the following
2 days, if the weather is permitting. We have contradicting weather reports,
but we just risk the ascent.
