I'm in Pakistan

I arrived to Pakistan on June 10th at 9pm.

I met most of the teammate. It is an international group with farily diversified climbing background. This group will climb Broad Peak then I will move on to K2, with Lakpa, Rob and Chris.

The initial plan was flying to Skardu. It is a 45minutes flight. Unfortunately, all the flights had been cancelled since June 6th due to bad weather. The Authority informed us that the next flight might be on June 15th. In other words, our flight should have been scheduled not before ~ the 18th of June. So we’ve decided to drive to Skardu.

The drive took us 2 full days. Islamabad to Chilaz : 18h drive, Chilaz to Skardu : 13h drive.

We arrived last night, exhausted....

Today we are checking the tents and fold the ropes. Tomorrow we will do a last minute shopping, and pack our bags. We are allowed to take 3 bags of 25kg each.
