the north face evolution triclimate 2585 Exploration Log B

No further reports of SCP 2585 activity occurred until 1987, which resulted in the deaths of three climbers. Due to this, another exploration was planned to verify the status of the anomaly. As with the first exploration, a team of three Foundation personnel with significant mountaineering experience were selected (P, J, and L). In addition to their climbing equipment, harness, and bottled oxygen, the team was given a more sophisticated video/audio recording device and three Beretta Series 81 pistols. The team once again ascended via the Abruzzi Spur.

[Sections of the climb prior to Camp C have been omitted for brevity.]

P: Seracs; I know K2 is notorious for them, but they shouldn’t be here I’m not quite sure where “here” is at the moment, but I’m still pretty sure that they shouldn’t be there.

Base: Is the route impassable?

P: If we try to climb that, we won’t end up anywhere but beneath an avalanche oh fuck!

A loud rumbling and crashing is heard.

P: We’re alright, Base; part of the seracs just broke off, but we weren’t hit. Everything’s P?

P: here, that in the spacesuit.

Base: SCP 2585 1 is present? What is it doing?

P: Nothing. It’s just floating near a ledge about ten meters above us. It’s nearly upside down, just hanging there. It’s also staring at us, I think; the face screen is just black.

Base: Are you sure you’re alright, P?

P: I’ve climbed Eiger2, Annapurna3, and this is my third time on K2. The astronaut really isn’t frightening me much.

Base: I see. Please continue to observe SCP 2585 1 and inform us if anything changes.

P: Roger, Base. It’s still just floating there, I wait a moment.

P: It’s holding its hand out towards us. The palm is facing us, fingers outstretched. I’m not sure if it’s reaching out to us or P, come in?
