Springer heads to K2 base camp

Rob Springer has moved over to the K2 base camp after several attempts to climb Broad Peak. There will be no more attempts of Broad peak by him this year.

Instead he hopes to be able to make his first steps on K2. Field Touring Alpine have already setup ropes to camp 2 on the Cesen route.

As for the death on Broad Peak a few days ago he said that it was a “long and complicated story”. Field Touring Alpine had hinted that they might not be going ahead with the K2 part of the expedition after this death, but they have continued.
