North Ridge Expedition may change plans on climb to camp 3

At the moment the plan for the North Ridge expedition is to continue on with their current plans and try to get to camp 3 this week. But the revised weather forecasts has them wondering just how far they might get.

It has been reported in the Karakoram in the last few days that there has been a surge in the wind speed. This has been especially true the higher up the mountains.

The climbers were at camp 1 at 5900m earlier in the day. Their plan was to set off for camp 2 at 6600m. And then make the route to camp 3 above 7100m. But this will change if the weather is bad enough.
