Polish expedition setup higher on the mountain

Kinga Baranowska has said that the Polish expedition are going to try to get to at least C2 on K2. While the weather holds then they will try to setup their equipment higher on the mountain.

She said it was brave for Leila Esfandyari from Iran to come and try climb K2 by herself. She does have 2 porters but  doesn’t have the assistance of other experienced climbers.

There is alot of snow at base camp she said. It is half a meter deep. The Polish expedition have a very good base camp setup, she said.

Now is a good time to try climb K2 she believes. This is because of the nature of the snow. Late in August the snow becomes feathery and can be difficult to climb on. At the moment the footing in the snow is better.
