Christian Stangl to make another attempt on K2

Christian Stangl has decided not to leave K2 and instead will at least give it one more effort this year. He said that it will not be a ‘Skyrun’. This is where he climbs a mountain at a great speed. Instead he said that he would just be happy to make the summit. And if he achieves that then he would not need to return and try again next year. He wants to climb in the early morning when there is less chance of rockfall.

He has heard word that there is another weather window coming up and is looking to test out whether it is possible to do it this year.

He also noted that the roads out from Skardu have been interrupted by the heavy floods. This would affect those that are leaving base camp.
