K2 basecamp

Hi everyone, We had amazing weather for the 13.5 hr round trip hike up to K2 basecamp and back. We are doing fantastic if not a bit tired from yesterday. Our local support team of Balti porters and Pakistani crew have been wonderful. We are starting down valley today, taking about 4 days to walk and then the 5th day to jeep back to Skardu. We will give brief updates from the InReach along the way, then a wrap up and photo dump from Skardu/Islamabad. Thanks for following along! Eric and Dan Thanks Eric Murphy
