Saser Kangri II Day 1

Posted on: September 12th, 2011 by Luke Bauer

AAC President Steve Swenson was evacuated from Advanced Base Camp after difficulty breathing. He has recovered quickly and completely and sent us a number of reports on his, Mark Richey’s, and Freddie Wilkinson’s successful ascent of Saser Kangri II. We’ve reposted parts of these reports here.

I was uncertain still about my health, but on August 18th I called Jim @ Mountain Weather for a forecast and I had to make a decision whether to go or not because we were going to get the weather we needed in a couple of days.  By the 20th I felt good enough to move up to ABC that day with Mark and Freddie.  It was a nice ski with some new snow on the glacier.  But there was a seriousness to this trip though that hasn’t been there before – we know this is going to be our one big try on Sasser Kangri II and it makes everyone just a bit more anxious.  Read the rest of the story on Steve Swenson’s Blog.
