Giuseppe Pompili said that he had a tough night sleeping at 6000m. It took him just over 3 hours to go from base camp to C1. He said that those that were less experienced at climbing at this height would take longer.
Also they did not use the ropes that the Koreans had put in place. This issue was resolved though after a meeting with them. he said that there have been meetings with team leaders to resolve the issues of cooperation. It looks like the teams are going to cooperate so that less equipment will have to carried up to the higher parts of K2.
