North Ridge expedition make camp 2

The expedition to the North Ridge of K2 has made it to camp 3 at 6400m. They went a further 300m than they had gone on July 7th. This is despite the fact that the snow was very deep.

Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and Ralf Dujmovits will be the first 2 to stay at camp 2 for the night. They are staying there to acclimatize. The others went down to the intermediate camp at 6100m.

Now that the camp is established they will be looking for a way to camp 3 in the remaining time before the weather closes again.
