Their forecast shows good weather until next Wednesday,
so they will try to get to camp III to be above 7,000
Since yesterday, Sunday, July 11th, the weather on K2 began
to improve and a window of good weather is expected until next Wednesday.
Andalucia K2 Expedition, sponsored by Consejería de Turismo, Comercio y
Deporte, will try to go above 7,000 meters of altitude and reach Camp III
before the weather gets worse.
In the different camps on the bottom of giant K2 there is
the rumor that a period of good weather that can be used to attempt the summit
will begin between July 18 and 21, so the members of the Andalucian expedition
are trying to get the complete forecasts for those days and they are
especially interested to get wind data. They are getting help from the
meteorologist Jorge Corripio and from their liaison in Andalucia, Francisco
Alí Manem. The forecasts from Kobler's Swiss expedition are at their disposal
and they don't fail, but even so they will try to gather as much information
During these last days the Andalucian expedition has had
Leonardo Bizarro as a guest in base camp; he is a journalist of La Reppublica
(Italy) who in his report of last 11th writes: "Close to the great white
pyramid of 'Casa Italia', the camp of the Italian Agostino Da Polenza
expedition, there is a bunch of colored tents of a group of nice Andalucians,
another international expedition that gathers Basques, Colombians, Rumanians,
Kazaks, Germans and French, headed by Swiss Kari Kobler and another Spanish
official expedition from TVE, Al filo de lo imposible."
expedition is organized by Federación Andaluza de Montañismo, Club Alpino Ama
Dablam (San Pedro Alcantara), Club Montañero Sierra del Pinar (Jerez de la
Frontera) and Club de Aire Libre Treparriscos (Granada), and sponsored by
Consejería de Turismo, Comercio y Deporte of Junta de Andalucía, through
Deporte Andaluz, Ayuntamiento de Jerez, and also Tenencia de Alcaldía de San
Pedro Alcantara and Delegaciones Municipales de Juventud y Deportes, Cultura y
Turismo del Ayuntamiento de Marbella.
