Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner will attempt K2 soon

Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner has said that she will attempt K2 within the next few weeks. After successfully climbing Everest she had no frostbite or any injury that would prevent her from attempting K2.

Presently, Kaltenbrunner has completed 13 of the 14 8000m mountains. It seems fitting that if she is successful on all 14, that K2, one of the most difficult of these mountains, is the last one to be conquered.
