FTA has made the steps in the latest attempt to climb K2. Only 2 from this group are going up: Fabrizio Zangrilli and Meagan McGrath. Chris could not make it because he was still feeling weak after recent climbs. He is very disappointed to not be making another attempt. Brian, also from FTA has not stayed because of business reasons have called him away. He had also been hoping to make another attempt.
There is a window till the 8th of August, FTA said. The 6th of August will be the likely summit day. This has changed from the 5th of August. The forecast is good for the 6th of August, with light winds. On the 5th there are low winds but some snow is expected on this day.
