Video: Life In Broad Peak Base Camp

Posted on the 28 February 2013 by Kungfujedi @Kungfujedi
For the past week and a half the Polish team on Broad Peak has been stuck in Base Camp, waiting for an opportunity to go back up the mountain. The weather has been less than favorable, so while they waited for a turn they had to find time to occupy themselves. The video below gives you a sense of what life in BC is like during these downtime, which mostly consists of resting, eating and finding ways to pass the hours. Apparently that includes jumping over large fires.
The team received good news yesterday in the form of an updated weather forecast that indicates a window may be opening early next week. To take advantage of that window they'll likely start back up the mountain tomorrow. This could be there final chance at nabbing the first winter summit of BP. We'll just have to wait to see if it happens.
