Episode 193: Turn The Lightbulb, Pet The Dog

No One Is Immune From The Dance! After descending back to Broad Peak Base Camp to avoid some bad weather moving in, the team passes time making calzones and exploring other ways to entertain themselves while waiting for the weather forecast to improve.

Everyone is ready for summit day…now they just need a good weather window to open up.

Even though their supply of alcohol has been consumed, the climbers and their support team hold a hypoxic dance party with singing and even drumming provided by the cook staff. Here in the Karakorum, a kerosine canister makes a pretty good drum in a pinch.

Later, the team resumes the climb and head back up to Camp 2 to get in some more altitude before summit day.
