Kaltenbrunner did not think the summit push was too risky

Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner doe not consider that she was taking a great risk when climbing with Fredrik Ericsson on the final summit push. She said that the conditions were reasonable and that they were being cautious. It was just bad luck that Ericsson fell, she said.

Recently she has been climbing in the Swiss Alps. Climbing is a very natural thing for her to do, she says.

Now and again she thinks back to K2. She imagines that she is really back there. At the moment she does not know if she will go back and make another attempt. She is trying to get away from all that happened there for the moment before she thinks about it again.

In October she and her husband will be going to the Papua province in Indonesia to climb the Carstensz Pyramid. This mountain has been on some of the 7 summits lists as the tallest in Oceania.
