Climbers going for the top

Despite the difficulties of the Bottleneck, a number of climbers are trying to reach the summit. They estimate that there is a 4 hour climb from the Bottleneck to the summit. They have been roping this section of the mountain but it has been taking its time.

Kazakh climbers would be part of the group with Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner on this section with other climbers. There are about 9 climbers in total in this section at the moment.
