Juanito Oiarzabal’s 2004 K2 summit still affects him

After Juanito Oiarzabal returned from K2 in 2004 it took him 3 years to recover. He nearly lost his life while making the summit. His feet were frostbitten and he lost most of toes.

That was the second summit of K2 for Juanito Oiarzabal. He had previously climbed it in 1994.

Now he wants to climb more 8000m mountains for a second time. He has already climbed all of the 8000m mountains and done 7 of the, including K2, twice.
