Climbers wait out the weather at K2 base camp

Giuseppe Pompili has said that the weather has been really bad at K2 for the past few days. This has prevented him from trying to go further up the mountain.

While they are waiting they are listening to music, washing their clothes, visiting others, reading books, etc. The generator has been fixed so he is now able to upload to his PC. Memories are coming back to him though while he waits. Memories of slipping on mountains and surviving.

He did say that the cook for Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and her husband is the same one that cooked for him on the G2 expedition in 2000 and 2001.
