Kinga Baranowska has made camp 2 on K2. The weather conditions have been excellent for climbing. But she encountered very deep snow on the way from camp 1 to camp 2. Climbing from camp 1 the conditions for the first few hundred yards were good. But after that they were in waist high snow.
Last year it took only 3 hours to get from camp 1 to camp 2. This year the time was 10 hours. The deep snow was not expected.
She is hoping for stable snow conditions ahead.
