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.

Snow-gum dieback update. By Dr. Matt Brookhouse

“Snow-gum dieback—the phenomenon quietly eating away at our high-elevation woodlands—is very poorly understood. For example, it is completely unclear why some stands of trees are being virtually wiped out, while others, only 500 metres away, are virtually untouched. Are there underlying differences between sites with differing dieback severity, or is dieback severity a product of patterns in the spread of the insect responsible?”

“@mont.. good tent!

Here is some camera phone footage of a storm that rolled in quickly and caused a surprising amount of change to the landscape. I couldn’t escape my tent so I’m glad it protected me from the weather. It was a bit scary but also very beautiful. Other tents around mine were torn to shreds. Always choose quality! 👌”
