Kyrgyz climbers warm Kazakhs of icy climbing conditions

Kyrgyz climbers  have warned Maxut Zumayev and Vassiliy Pivtsov that there could be icy conditions ahead on K2. These Kyrgyz climbers are on Nanga Parbat and have found it more icy than usual. There is less snow on the climbing route.

Maxut said that the K2 climb would be more technical and slower if more rock was exposed.

Both Maxut Zumayev and Vassiliy Pivtsov moved ahead of the others in the North Ridge expedition. At the moment they are using about 40 camels to traverse the last part to K2. They are crossing rivers on the way. They know this route well as they came this way in 2007. Maxut got sunburned underestimating the brightness of the sun.
