Serguey Bogomolov plans K2 attempt in 2011

Serguey Bogomolov has said that he will make an attempt on K2 in 2011. The Russian has much experience climbing high mountains. He wants to be the first Russian to climb all 14 8000m mountains.

He wants to form a team with experienced climbers who work well as a team. Also the majority of them should speak Russian. This would make communication less of a problem.

The plan is to climb from the north side of K2. This is the Chinese side of the mountain. Not many expeditions try to climb K2 from this side. Finding support is harder from this side.
