We have now established camp 2 on Broad Peak at 6300m. Marty, Denali and I sat out 3 days of strong winds, comfortable in our tent playing long games of cards and acclimatizing. We have a great little tent spot protected by some rock pinnacles on the windy side and one metre away to the other side a 1000m drop, where beyond we watch the weather change over the nearby K2.
We did attempt to climb to camp 3 over the 3 days at camp 2 but the wind proved too much and the visibility too poor.
Everyone is feeling good on the mountain.

...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.

My five favourite Mont gear picks after a winter and summer season in the European Alps with over 200 days of climbing, skiing and paragliding in the mountains from shorter day hits to multi day adventures.
