After a snowy and windy walk, we made it to basecamp! Over lunch we met the rest of the team that were a few days ahead. There are folks from South Africa, Australia, USA, and believe it or not, another girl from Canada which Katrina was quite pleased about!
We then kicked into high gear to build tent platforms out of the glacial rubble, setup tents, and generally spent the afternoon phaffing around. (phaff; to move slow at 16,000ft or higher, which is where we are now)! You can sense K2 and Broad Peak looming in the clouds above and around us….very surreal.
With the weather batteries are low, so with hopefully some sun, we will try to charge up and give you a more proper tour of basecamp.
Till then this is Broad Peak BC, signing off!
