On the Road to Islamabad

Dave Watson is on the ground in Pakistan. Arriving in Islamabad, Dave and the other guys from the K2 Tall Mountain Expedition tracked down their delayed luggage, met with the Ministry of Tourism about guidelines and regulations around their permit, and got more of the logistics organized with the travel agency (things like the number of porters – 70!). Hitting the road on Saturday from Islamabad on the way to Skardu and the Karakoram Mountains, Dave called in to Utah radio station KSL’s Utah Outdoors Show. KSL has the podcast of Saturday’s show online for listening here (about ¼ of the way through the podcast):


We’ll keep posting updates here, and you can catch Dave calling in to KSL’s Utah Outdoors via satellite phone every Saturday morning between 6-8am (MST).

Expedition goal: climb and ski Broad Peak and K2 via the Cesen Route. More here:
