Nope--We made it to about 13,000 feet. We turned around at 8:30 AM because the sun-baked snow was already so soft we were sinking deeply, and we still had a lot of steep, somewhat avalanche-prone snow to contend with before K2. One huge cornice partially broke loose, above bc44caesar and photo61guy, and fortunately missed them. We had some fun (and painful) glissades on the way out, and as we got back to our cars, storms were moving in, so it was pretty good timing in getting away. Awesome place though!
Thanks. It was a lot of fun and some awesome scenery. There were six of us: photo61guy, km_donovan, Scott Patterson, PellucidWombat, bc44caesar, and myself. I will definitely be going back some time, hopefully this summer.
Stay tuned for the trip report!
This is a great photo, really makes you feel like you are there...great job guys!
Anyone writing a trip report can use some of my pics...that is once I get the slide film back.
Really like this one Brad. Hope the arm heals quickly.
Thanks Joel. Looking forward to seeing some of your photos... once they're developed and all. :-) I'm sure you got some good ones on this trip.
I agree with Joel, I like it...looks like trouble ahead!!!
and it was fun. The Nepalese Restaurant was good too. I definitely want to go back, Capitol has got to be the most majestic mountain I have seen.
