THE K2 BASE CAMP HISTORY
K2 Base Camp in Fortitude Valley beats with the collective heart and soul of its founder Winton Flesser and well-informed team, as they help like-minded adventurers on their merry way. Founded on the basis of a genuine love for adventure and the outdoors, K2 is structured around the catch cry “Let all of your challenges come from the adventures you undertake and not from the gear you have chosen”.
The locally owned and run K2 Base Camp has been helping adventurers experience, explore and succeed for over 30 years now with a passionate team and quality climbing gear. The K2 team are only genuine outdoor enthusiasts – people “who live it, breathe it, talk it, and know it inside out”. From its faithful perch on Fortitude Valley’s Wickham Street, K2 has become a Brisbane institution for those at home in the outdoors, local adventure-seekers and a myriad of backpackers and explorers alike.
