Pompili reaches C3 on K2

Giuseppi Pompili has been climbing K2 in the last few days. At the moment he is at C3 with some other climbers. There is a weather window at the moment and he said the weather conditions between C2 and C3 were very good. it was sunny and there was no wind.The condition underfoot were good too. It took them less than 7 hours to get from C2 to C3.

Joining him were 6 porters. These porters were from 3 groups: Pompili, George Dijmarescu and Leila Esfandyari. Adriano was also along and made it to camp 3. Not surprisingly, Christian Stangl is also at C3. He has yet to acclimatize. But that may not prevent him trying for the summit. More likely though is that he will go back down after a acclimatizing.

The plans are not to go for the summit at the moment. Rather he plans to go down to C2 if the conditions are right.
