Just received a fresh batch of long-sleeve Patagonia Capilene 1 synthetic shirts, printed with the 14ers.com logo. If you're interested in just a cotton t-shirt, I have new, blue shirts plus some of the older styles.

Summitted during the only perfect weather days of the summer, last week. Several sizable snowfields across the talus prior to K2. You can do it with hiking poles, but in the early morning, the steps are icy and spikes would be nice. Once you ascend toward K2, conditions are ideal. Camping is a challenge. Arrive early or be prepared to invent a campsite. (Hillhag & Slowhead have only two 14ers left now.)
