Christian Stangl considers his options

Christian Stangl is staying at K2 base camp waiting to see if there is another opportunity to make a summit attempt. At the moment he is considering whether to stay and a lot of that depends on the weather to come. He said that other climbers have already left and are not going to wait for another opportunity. But some are also staying.

He had made it up to camp 3 on the last summit push on the Abruzzi Spur. But a fog prevented him going any further. He only found out about the death of Ericsson when he got back to base camp. The atmosphere around the base camp was pretty bad, he said. The disappointment of the death of Fredrik Ericsson still lingers.

He said that there is always next year if the conditions don’t allow him to make the summit this year.
