“I’ll be there too, I’m going back up, to Base Camp, to the foot of K2. I'll then let the strong mountaineers, my Scoiattoli, take the helm. It’ll be like meeting an old friend, someone dear.”
Lino Lacedelli

31 July 1954: Lino Lacedelli and Achille Compagnoni are the first to set foot on the summit of K2 (8611m), the second highest and most difficult mountain in the world.

June - July 2004: the Scoiattoli of Cortina d’Ampezzo, climbing along the route established by the Italian expedition in 1954, will attempt to follow in the footsteps of the "Scoiattolo" Lino Lacedelli. He will accompany them to the foot of the great mountain.

WEATHER
27-07-2004
A weak ridge is situated over Afghanistan. It may at times affect the K2-area during the first days giving only risk of occasional showers. Then it seems to become more unsettled with frequent showers due to lows over Kashmir and Tibet.
