Climbers return to base camp on K2

A number of climbers on both routes up K2 have returned to base camp. They had to return because of the bad weather which is expected to last till Thursday. This means a few days of waiting around and preparing for further climbs later.

  • Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner and her husband Ralf have returned from C3 on the Cesen route
  • Fredrick Ericsson came down the Cesen Route from C3 by skiing. His climbing partner Trey Cook has been at base camp nursing frostbitten fingers
  • Leila Esfandyari from Iran has returned from C2 on the Abruzzi Spur
  • Members of the Polish expedition have returned from C2 on the Cesen route
