Broad Peak expeditions heading to K2

The expeditions on Broad Peak are heading over to K2 in the next few days. FTA made an attempt to climb Broad Peak the other day unsuccessfully and members will be headed to K2 soon. Mike Horn managed to make the summit of Broad Peak and will be attempting K2 also.

Giuseppe Pompili says that to attempt to climb Broad Peak then to come over and try K2 is a mistake. He learned this lesson in 2007. That year he attempted Broad Peak then switched over to K2. He did not manage to climb K2 that year. He says that if one is to climb K2 then it needs a focus only on K2. There are many factors in this but the weather window is the most important one. If you are climbing another mountain then you might miss the only weather window on K2 for that summer.
