Field Touring Alpine arrive at base camp

Field Touring Alpine have arrived at base camp for Broad Peak. Their first goal will be to make an attempt on this mountain before turning their attention to K2.

They have been feeling so good that they have made much more progress than they had thought. On the 24th Chris, Meagan and 5 high altitude porters setup up completely the route to C1. They mentioned that quite a few groups are not using ropes this year, so that would mean that all members of their group will have to help setting up the ropes.

The plan over late June is as follows:

  • Ben, Rob and Brian will carry gear necessary to C1
  • On the 26th and 27th Fabrizio and some porters will fix the route to C2
  • On the 27th, 28th, and 29th members will get acclimatization at C1
