K2 North: The arrival of the
restocking supplies –
The bad weather continues on
the North Side of K2. Even today, in fact, there is a fresh coat of snow on
the tents around base camp. The following are Fabio Agostinis’ impressions:
“Today’s news is that the
first of the restocking supplies of food have arrived. Remaining so long at
base camp, we have consumed many more food supplies than originally planned
It is the third time that I
find myself facing this side of the mountain. The first two times were in
1991 and 1994 and this was to be the crowning trip of the three. 5 days of
decent weather in two months is really too few in which to hope to accomplish
something. We hope that the weather of the next couple of weeks will surprise
us! What do I think of when I think of Italy? Well, my family for sure, my
two sons who are almost grown and my daughter who is about to graduate from
college. A greeting to all"
