Camels needed to cross river for North Ridge expedition

The North Ridge expedition have been slowed by an uncrossable river before arriving at base camp for K2. They will need the camels to make it over. The camels though are a distance behind the trekkers. This shows the importance of the camels if trekkers want to make it all the way to K2 on the Chinese side. Up to this point it has been mentioned that the rivers were at a lower level than when Maxut Zumayev and Vassiliy Pivtsov went there in 2007.

Once over the river, base camp will not be too far away. From there it is still a day or 2 away to the advanced base camp for K2. Others in the expedition include: Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Ralf Dujmovits, Tommy Heinrich, and Darius Zaluski.
