Winter K2 Team in Camp 3; Heading for Camp 4 Tomorrow

Unlike on Cho Oyu, pounded by snowfall and strong winds, the benign weather on K2 has allowed Grace Tseng and Nima Gyalzen Sherpa’s team to reach Camp 3 safely.

They hope to reach and set up Camp 4 tomorrow. But if the wind is too strong, the team will stay in Camp 3 until conditions improve. They have set Thursday, February 24 as their potential summit day, according to outfitter Summit Karakoram.
