Pakistan Winter Broad Peak 2012-13: Polish Climbers in Camp 2

Posted: Mar 03, 2013 01:55 pm EST
(Newsdesk) Maciej Berbeka, Adam Bielecki, Artur Małek, Tomasz Kowalski and Karim Hayyat left Base Camp today and reached Camp 2 where they are spending the night. The team thus have chosen their second option which they were discussing two days ago.

Tomorrow they are going to Camp 4 and go for the summit in the March 5th before the weather window closes.

Today the weather was good and the sun shining.

A note from the climbing community to ExplorersWeb reads, "this Polish team is a good and strong one. They so much deserve to bag Broad Peak in Winter."

The support agency in Pakistan for the Polish Winter Broad Peak 2012-13 is Jasmine Tours Pakistan
