Αποστολή Κ2

Post by Dimitris »

K2 and Nobody, 19/6/2014
Yesterday Panos and Alexandros arrived at K2 base camp (5000m) after a 7-day trek (in the first three days under a burning sun and in the last day through light snowfall). The team consists of the two climbers, the liaison officer, a cook and his assistant. Since nobody else has arrived yet at base camp, Alexandros and Panos have the whole mountain for themselves.

Panos and Alexandros are back to B.C. after the first acclimatization trip. They enjoyed being on the Cesen route all by themselves. They slept two nights at C1 (5900m), and the third day they pushed it towards C2. However, the deep fresh snow on the steep slops (50 - 65 degrees) made their progress slow and exhausting. Thus, at an altitude of about 6100m they decided to turn back down. Yet, their spirits are still high. While waiting for better snow conditions on the Cesen, the plan is to switch to the Abruzzi spur for pushing their acclimatization further.
Three other expeditions have arrived at B.C., and more are on the way.

During the second acclimatization trip, Panos and Alexandros went at to the Abruzzi spur and spent one night at C1 (5950m) and another one at C2 (6600m), just above the Houses’ chimney. The route is already fixed up to that point, yet Panos and Alexandros climbed with two ice axes each (i.e. not pulling on the fixed ropes).

The most dramatic moment was during the approach through the broken glacier very early in the morning, when Panos broke through the thin ice and fell in a glacial lake of unknown depth. It was a survival situation not to sink with the backpack and to extract himself out (credits to Alexandros for his immediate assistance). The guys did not give up for the day but continued climbing to C1. Now they are safely back to B.C. for a good rest. It is snowing all day and night; good weather for reading and dreaming.

Yπάρχει πουθενά στο διαδικτυο ημερολόγιο της αποστολής?

An update from the B.C. Alex and Panos made a direct ascent to C2 (6700m) carrying some equipment for higher up (second tent, down suits, sleeping bags, food and fuel), yet the strong winds didn’t allow them to climb higher. The weather, severe and unpredictable is the biggest obstacle in climbing K2.

So far the guys have slept three nights at C1 and another three at C2. Their plan now is to go to C3 (7350m) and beyond so as to be ready for the summit push.

K2 and Nobody, 18/7/2014
Panos and Alexandros left from BC on 13/07 at 10pm and arrived for one more time at C2 (6700m) in a single push (about 10h). The next morning, at 3pm, they continued to C3 (7350m) where they established a second camp. Climbing at night they had lower winds, better snow conditions and no other climbers on route.
At C3 it snowed overnight and in the morning the wind was increasing. Thus, instead of staying up there for a second night, a quick decision was made to go down. This decision proved to be a wise one because C3 could had otherwise been an avalanche trap. The descent was a nightmare. The wind and the associated spindrift were at extreme, and the visibility was reduced to no more than 5-7 meters. Alex's sunglasses and Panos' mask were useless in those conditions (rimed up from the inside). Rappelling down the Black Pyramid was hell! The guys made it to BC in 7h (2 vertical km of rappelling and crossing of the broken glacier).
Now they are physically and mentally prepared for the summit push. All they need is a good rest and a perfect weather window. Inshallah, all this will come to a good end.

We are departing for our summit push at midnight. Our plan is to be on the summit on 26/07 and start our descent before noon. We would had gone for the 24th but other teams were not ready... Inshallah, we will be safely down to BC by the 27th.
