While climbers from Field Touring Alpine are taking their last chance at making the summit of Broad Peak, they have others who are setting up the route for them on K2.
Lakpa Sherpa and 2 other high altitude porters are setting up the ropes and tents to camp 3 on the Cesen route. They have put ropes on the steeper sections up to camp 2 so far. Their aim is to continue this to camp 3 before the climbers from Field Touring Alpine arrive.
Once the final attempt on Broad Peak is over, Springer will switch over to K2. Some other members of the expedition to Broad Peak will join him, while others will head home.
