Plans for summit attempt of K2 starting on the 24th of July

Marcin Miotk has said that there are plans to try for the summit later in the week. The dates that he mentioned are the 24th, 25th and 26th of July. These dates are inline with what others have been saying. The weather forecast has said that there will be a number of good days days from the 23rd. It is assumed that all of the expeditions will be trying for the summit during this period.

He also spoke about the death of the Bulgarian climber. He believes that he died in his sleep. He was found dead in his tent. Probably as a result of high altitude illness. This death gave Miotk thoughts about the dangers of climbing. He said that to everyone else it appears as though they are having a good climb in the Alps. But he said it was 10 times more dangerous than it has appeared.
