North Ridge Expedition relax at base camp

After making it to the height for camp 3, the North Ridge Expedition on K2 has gone all the way back to base camp. Here they relaxed after strenuous efforts on K2. This is the lowest of the camps that they have setup.

When at base camp they sang songs in different languages around a campfire, drank beer. They also put a gas bottle into the fire which went off like fireworks.

They have had word that the bad weather on K2, which made them retreat, will stop on 30th July.

Maxut Zumayev said that at night he can look outside his tent and see the stars of the Milky Way. These stars look huge and there are lots of them.

The expedition consists of: Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Ralf Dujmovits, Tommy Heinrich, Darius Zaluski, Maxut Zumayev and Vassiliy Pivtsov.
