Holes pocket Fabrizio’s tent

Fabrizio’s tent on camp 3 is filled with holes from the rocks that have fallen through it. These rocks have been falling since the temperatures have risen on K2. Try Cook had reported temperatures over 40 Celsius (100F). This has loosened the rocks from the snow and ice that was holding them together. Even though these rocks are quite often small, when they are falling from high above they can be quite dangerous. Once they reach near camp 4 they will be above the rockfall.

Fabrizio is hoping to make camp 4 at around 1 or 2pm. Then he will hydrate and rest before a midnight departure for the summit.
