Two climbers who attempted K2 last year are going to attempt 2 different 8000m mountains in Pakistan this year. Giuseppe Pompili and Leila Esfandiari will be making attempts on different mountains. Pompili will be climbing Gasherbrum 1. He has been updating his blog and there are some interesting things in it. At the moment there is a dispute between his expedition and the Polish one. There is currently a dispute over the location of the tents.
