Episode 188: Throwing Rocks
The Climb Begins! Brian Block and several members of his large group have arrived at Broad Peak base camp and begin the initial stage of the long climb to the 8051m/26,414′ summit.
The weather is unusually calm and warm and they take advantage of it by conducting a mini ascending and descending workshop for their climber-clients. The Broad Peak team is a large commercial expedition, and it’s a good idea for the guides to get a feeling for the experience their clients have when it comes to working with fixed lines.
Not a bad way to spend an afternoon!
