K2 2004 - 50 years later
K2 North - heading to the deposit camp
Settling in is progressing quickly. Tomorrow we will
initiate the removal of superficial snow and a group of climbers will begin to
head up towards the deposit camp.
July 1, 2004 - Base Camp K2 North: Today we finally set up
the dome and activated the photoelectric system. A beautiful day, not a cloud
in the sky. Romano and Nives went off on a reconnaissance mission towards the
face of the mountain.
Conditions have definetely improved. Tomorrow a group will
depart towards the deposit camp with a some of the equipment. I will be
working to clear some of the superficial snow.
On the South the climbers have moved to camp 2, and working
on camp 3
