The 2011/12 Russian expedition to K2 has been cancelled after the death of one of their climbers. Vitaly Gorelik died after suffering frostbite. The frostbite was on both hands. He had been climbing up to 7000m from 28th January to the 31st delivering gear.
A helicopter was called for Gorelik but it could not arrive because of the poor weather around K2. They await a helicopter to transport the body from base camp. All of the other members of the expedition are now at base camp.
