Christian Stangl will attempt the summit of K2. Normally he tries to summit a mountain and come back down within 24 hours. However, he has said that due to the difficult conditions he will not be trying to do this within this time frame. On midnight on Sunday he will begin his summit push. He will go up the Abruzzi Spur and try to do it in one big effort.
