K2 2004 - 50 years later
K2 North: Bad weather: snow
and strong winds. We have spent the entire day in our tents at Camp I,
awaiting an improvement in the weather.
This is what Claudio
Bastrentaz describes for us via radio/telephone this morning. Together with
expedition Leader Agostino Da Polenza they review the weather reports for the
upcoming few days.
For Monday – not perfect
weather, a little snow and strong wind is still predicted.
For Tuesday – already a great
improvement with good clearing weather and a quieter wind.
Wednesday is even better with
clear, sunny skies and even quieter winds even at high altitude.
They decide to wait out
another day at Camp I, on Tuesday, early they will head up to the higher camps
