Steve House on K6 and 7: Scouting and Starting K7
In this report from the Charakusa Valley, Steve House gives us an excellent description of K7’s features and explains how the team must find a way through the granite buttresses surrounding the base in order to get up on the mountain. Steve also talks about a special lunch they shared with the Colorado and Quebec teams, their stateside source for weather forecasts, and the final preparations for attempting the unclimbed west summit of K7.
