Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner calls off K2 summit attempt

Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner has reportedly called off her summit attempt. She has been in contact with her people and said that it was not possible to go for the summit this time.

When they arrived at C4 it was too late in the day. To then get ready within hours for a summit push would not have been possible. The recovery time would have been too small. There had been difficult conditions with the snow and the wind climbing up.
