Chris Warner on Broad Peak 1

We have been at Broad Peak base camp about a week now and have established our first camp on the mountain.  Last night we found out about the Nanga Parbat killings, absolutely shocking to hear. We don’t really know the full story as yet but the 3 of us feel very safe here up in the remote Baltoro.

We plan to keep to our program and after resting a few days in BC we will head back up to push to camp 2, Tomorrow we will walk up to K2 base camp which is about a hour away and see who’s arrived. It’s also a chance for us to shuttle some gear up there, ready for our attempt on K2 after acclimatising on Broad Peak.
