Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner to leave for K2 and Pakistan

Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner has confirmed that she is going to K2 this year. She will leave on this Sunday, 20th June for Pakistan.

Kaltenbrunner said that this will not be an easy climb. However, she said that she knows the mountain very well, having had several past attempts. The weather though, she said, was a real problem. Every time she has been to K2 the conditions are different, and she expects no different this time.

Under the bottleneck she said that you have to climb fast. If there is too much snow above this on the traverse then she knows that the climb is not possible. This is what happened last year.
