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.
Comments will be approved before showing up.

...on the morning that the reserves were to be opened, I was awake at 3am, on the road by 4am and walking away from the car in the foothills of Mount Wellington at 5am.
