This summer Mike Farris is leading a private expedition to climb K2 via the Abruzzi spur. Mike is a Mountain Company trek leader along with another member of the team, Paul Walters. Paul was on expedition with Roland to Kanchenjunga (2003) and Broad Peak (2004). Mike was also climbing on Broad Peak in 2004.
The expedition has recently arrived in Pakistan and will be starting their trek to K2 Base Camp shortly. They plan to send back regular updates, you can follow their progress at The Altitude Experience blog. If their expedition is still at Base Camp in August then Roland's K2 & Gondogoro La trek will no doubt drop in a for a cuppa!
After Mike's return from this K2 expedition he will be heading back to the Himalayas in October to lead The Mountain Company's Manaslu Circuit trek, for further information
Good luck guys and climb safely!
