  ANDALUCIA K2 EXPEDITION 2004: Together again in Camp IV


Andalucia, 13;45, Spain time

Latest news from Andalucia K2: Together again in Camp IV

The three Andalucian climbers will begin their descent along with five Italians

Andalucia K2 Expedition, sponsored by Consejería de Turismo, Comercio y Deporte de la Junta de Andalucía has just been a few meters short of their objective: the summit of K2.  Climbers Manuel González, Manuel Morales and Manuel Salazar are about to have shelter and rest in their tents of Camp IV.

At B. C. Fernando Fernández Vivancos and Rai García Del Moral are still in communication via radio with the three 'Manuel's of the Andalucian expedition.  Above 8,400 the Andalucian climbers have face a sudden and unexpected change in the weather and have decided to quit their attempt and go back to Camp IV (8,000 m.) surrounded by fog.  'Lolo' González has left to meet his teammates and in this moment they are about to reach C4 back with five Italian climbers.

They still have a hard phase of their adventure ahead, the descent to the different high altitude camps: C3 (7,100 m.), C2 (6,500) and C1 (6,000 m.) down to Base Camp (5,000 m.) which will probably begin with the Italians.
