K2 2004 - 50 years later
K2 North: All is rescheduled
awaiting the return of good weather.
On the north side of K2 the
bad weather persists. The mountain is covered, dark and cold, even if the
actual air temperature is relatively mild. We will await an improvement of
the atmospheric conditions.
The climbers, awakening at 2
a.m., observed a dark sky full of threatening rain. They waited to decide on
their actions until 3:30 a.m. Even then, there was little improvement, heavy
snow had begun to fall.
At 10 a.m., a tepid sun
appears between the clouds, but the light snow is now mixed with rain which
dampens the tents. It is useless to insist.
The outlook continues to be
positive and faced with continued difficulty, the group remains strong.
