K2 Expedition 2018
Location: Camp 3 on K2
Currently up in Camp 3 having a rest day. Depending on conditions, may either go to Camp 4 (c8000m) tomorrow, or wait another 24 hours. Have lots of food, gas and oxygen and weather is looking good for the weekend – it just depends how deep the snow is on the shoulder, and the ease of fixing the ropes through the bottleneck and along the traverse and towards the summit.
Some other teams can’t make up their minds if they want to go up or down, which is frustrating, as it may affect the size of the rope fixing team up high. Other than that, weather looking better this weekend, our spirits are high and we hope this weekend will yield results!
To give you an idea of what Jake is experiencing, below is a video he made when he was at Camp 3 on Broad Peak. It was made last week when he was preparing to make a solo summit attempt – after you have watched the video, you can read all about that here.
