Kaltenbrunner leaves for K2

Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner has updated her website on her final thoughts before leaving for K2. She should already have left Germany on the first part of the journey.

On her website she says that the flight goes to Moscow first and then to Bishkek, which is in Kyrgyzstan. Then they go to Kashgar where they buy all of their provisions for a 7 week expedition at the market. Then they take a jeep to Ilik. From here they will take camels to K2 base camp. They will be necessary to transport their cargo. Also they will prove to be necessary when crossing rivers.

She said that a friend of Tommy Heinrich, Lawang, will also be joining their party along with Ralf Dujmovits, Tommy Heinrich, Darius Zaluski, Maxut Zumayev and Vassiliy Pivtsov.
