Chris Warner on Broad Peak 2

Chris Warner on Broad Peak 2

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.
