K2 Expedition #527 July 2016

Wednesday July 27th

The K2 season once again draws to a close. The team left BC for the summit attempt but when they were at C2 a large avalanche come down and took away the C3.

Fortunately there was nobody in the camp at the time but we did lose a considerable amount of equipment so it is now impossible to continue up the hill. Tomorrow the team will start the trek back out to Skardu. K2 has an insatiable appetite for swallowing equipment so once again we take a huge loss of valuable equipment.
