Gardiner posts YouTube videos from K2 in July

Matthew Gardiner has posted a few short videos on YouTube from his time climbing K2 this year. The first video was shot when he was at C1 with Paul Crowsley. He talks about how hot it was during the day. Also he says that they would be leaving for C2 at 5 or 6 am the next day. There was very little room for the tent at C1.

The next video is of the memorial to Gilkey. He died in 1953 but it was the heroic effort to save him that is mountaineering legend.
