Heading for the Snow

Two mountaineers navigating a glacier on a Gasherbrum II Expedition

Lost baggage and an abnormally wet dry season isn’t getting this team down! They had a great New Year’s on the mountain with a better excuse than I have for not staying up ’til midnight! Everyone is feeling strong at 14,000′ and will proceed to their final camp at 15, 500′ tomorrow, where they will stay for two nights before their summit bid on the morning of the 4th. Although there is significantly more snow on Kili than normal, they should be able to climb as anticipated without the use of crampons. We’ll hear more after summit day!
