K2 2004 - 50 years later
K2 North: There is the smell
of polenta cooking at the intermediate camp.
Our friends at the K2 North
Intermediate camp are busy reshuffling and reorganizing equipment and
materials, while they wait for the weather to clear. Meanwhile, they are
dedicated to their “scopone” (a card game) tournament between Michele Comi
(currently up 1-0) against Fabio Agostinis.
Last night, in the “kitchen
tent”, actually a cloth hung against two dry rock walls (the only possible
storage area for the food supplies in this area), there was the appetizing
fragrance of polenta and tripe, a dish that serves in good stead to help keep
at bay the frigid temperatures
