Schreilechner Broad Peak and K2 Expedition 2004 update 7
Update 6/13/2004 Mor: Once again we have been getting
up at 5.00 and left at 6.00. Fred was
throwing up all night and had bad diarrhoea and felt bad in the morning.
Nevertheless everybody has arrived safely on our today’s goal, a place on the
Goodwin Austen Glacier about one hour from Concordia. Fred was already feeling
better, but he did not keep his dinner. He was really bad in the midday heat
and Rory and Maj. Ahmad helped him. My diarrhoea is finally cured and I am
felling excellent. Chad was bouldering around in the afternoon and I made
great photos of that with K2 in the background. Weather is excellent and it
should stay like this until tomorrow. We have only three hours of walking left
to Basecamp. Around 16.30 one of our porters showed signs of AMS. We gave him
Dexamethason and Nifedipine against it and sent him down the glacier with the
aid of some others. Luckily he was still able to walk on his own.
