  K2 2004: K2 South: New sortie at camp 1 - :  Italian expedition Everest/K2 2004 expedition


K2 2004 - 50 years later

K2 South: New sortie at camp 1 -

This morning at 5 a.m. a new contingent of climbers departed for camp 1 (6100 m.)  Objective: To bring up fresh supplies of food and materials for repairing a damaged tent.  The rest of the group is at advanced base camp.

This morning at 5:00 a.m. a group of climbers consisting of Nadia, Massimo, Walter, Leandro and Giuliano departed for camp 1 (6100 m.) with food supplies and materials for repairing a damaged tent.  At this hour (4:15 p.m.) they are all at the advanced camp where they will spend the night. 

This morning Mauri left for Islamabad, leaving the responsibilities of camp on the shoulders of Adraino.  For the remaining climbers, the morning was spent in paying a visit to the "K2 cemetery", a place which filled all of us with great emotion.

The afternoon was spent in straightening out the camp in preparation for the arrival of the last group of climbers and our expedition leader. Even today we had visitors at our camp: from Mario Dibona, a participant of the squirrels currently at Broad Peak and the curious figure of an italian/japanese journalist who comes from Honolulu and who advised us that he is accredited through our expedition (it is up to you to verify this..we will meanwhile seek out ulterior forms of identification/clarification). This continuous stream of visitors to our camp helps raise our morale and keeps us motivated to continue to do all we can to maintain the high esteem of our peers and from others on the outside.
