Earlier this month George was left to battle his way out of a crevasse after being ignored by another climber. He feel into it while climbing to the shoulder on K2. At the time he did not know how far he had fallen. He battled to get out but the exhaustion caused by the lack of oxygen at this height caused him to struggle.
Another climber passed closely by, about 10m from where he had fallen into the crevasse. He called out to this climber and the climber turned around. George believed he heard his plea for help. But he just kept climbing towards the summit. This left George, believing that he could be in serious trouble, to find his way out of the crevasse. Eventually he did, but it needed some serious effort.
