K2 2004 - 50 years later
K2 North: We have reached a
quota of 7000 meters! - July 27, 2004
The challenge K2 2004
continues! On the north face, heavy snow notwithstanding on the high
traverses, our team has braved the difficult Spigolo (North Corner?) route and
reached 7000 meters.
10:30 Italian time - 13:30 at
K2 North Base camp
We have just descended from camp II at 6650 meters. Nives, Romano and Luca
were able to climb to 7000 meters. Now all are at base camp for a pause
Next week we go back up for
our attempt on the summit. At present, there is still a lot of snow, which
does not firm up sufficiently on the ridge. Mario Panzeri
