Meagan McGrath comes back from C2

Meagan McGrath made it to C2 on K2 before heading back down to base camp. On the 26th of July she went up with a fellow FTA member and made it to C2. This gave them both acclimatization.

The original intention was to get to C3. But they heard that there was going to be poor weather conditions so were not sure how much further than C2 they would climb. They ended up climbing a couple of hundred feet higher than C2 before the weather worsened and they decided that it was not worth it. On the 27th of July they headed back down to base camp.

FTA lost half of their group on the 28th of July. This leaves only 4 members still there.

She said that Fabrizio Zangrilli arrived safely at base camp. On the shoulder of K2 the snow was thigh deep.

At the moment they are awaiting a weather window. It was raining when she was speaking.
