Five climbers from Field Touring Alpine reached camp 3 on the Cesen route on K2. They are: Sophie Denis, Lakpa, Farhad, Aziz and Said. They were aiming to make camp 4 on K2’s shgoulder today. The summit push will be on Friday the same as other expeditions. If Sophie Denis made it to the top of K2 should would have a rare double in the same year: making the summit of Broad Peak and K2 which so many have tried and failed to do in the one summer.
Rob Springer though went back down to base camp. He had made it between camp 2 and 3 then turned back. He is thinking of his options at this stage.
An interesting thing though is what the report said about the winds. It said that they were strong even at base camp. Other reports from climbers have so far said that the winds have been light.
