K2 Expedition 2017 #720 July 2017

Hi All

There is nothing to report, we still sit at BC waiting for the correct weather to arrive. It is bleak and quite frustrating to have clear patches at times, but only to see that it is still blowing at altitude. But what is encouraging we can see that it is not snowing up high on the mountain. This means that we might be able to more early without too much avalanche danger.

At least we have packed loads and are ready to go as soon as we deem suitable.

Really the only great news is that our Liaison Officer, Squadron Leader Dshbaq Ahmad’s wife this morning delivered a healthy son to join his daughter. Of course Ahmad is sad not to be with his wife at this moment, but he is very happy that both mother and baby are healthy.

Happy LO

We wait patiently for a chance to reach the summit.
