Warning for all 2005 Expeditions


Pakistan Meteorological Dept. Warning for all 2005 Expeditions May 18, 2005

"Due unprecedented heavy snowfall in this winter especially around K2/Broad Peak/Nanga Parbat/G1 /G2, the tracks/steepness have changed; and the risk of avalanches (due to loaded-snow) is high as compared to previous years. The coming expedition season may be very hard.

They should not depend on the mountain/tracks pictures of last years, try to get latest high resolution satellite pictures of K2. The frequency of westerly pressure waves approaching northern parts of Pakistan is still higher as compared to the normal, But some parameters indicate that it is likely to be normal gradually".

Note: Pakistan's Meteorological Reports have been fairly accurate in the past, especially in predicting the weather calamities during the heavy winter snows of 1995 - 1996, which led to significant climbing fatalities.
These predictions are from Pakistan, and for Pakistan Karakoram range, not Chinese K2.
