Txikon claims second 8000m mountain in the Karakoram summer

Alex Txikon and Louis Rousseau have made the summit of Gasherbrum 2. For Txikon this is the second 8000m that he has claimed after climbing Gasherbrum 1 nine days ago.

Rousseau would be pleased as he did not make the summit of Gasherbrum 1 after doing all of the ground work the day before.

Txikon will now join Gerfried Goeschl in an attempt to climb K2. If he succeeds then it will be his third 8000m mountain of the season.
