Kaltenbrunner expects to start up K2 in next few days

It has been reported on Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner’s website that in the next 4 days she will make her first steps on K2 in 2011. Till now she has been waiting for a weather window like all others on the North side of K2. She has either been in base camp, or the mid camp – Italian camp.

She has set off for advanced camp and by doing so indicates that she intends to start climbing the mountain.

Kaltenbrunner will not be aiming to reach the top at this stage. Rather a period of acclimatization will be needed before any serious assault on K2’s summit.
