North Ridge Expedition did not stay at camp 3

The expedition on the North Ridge of K2 were unable to stay at camp 3 on K2 because of exhaustion, Maxut Zumayev said. The camp is at 7150m.

They have descended and are now at advanced base camp for rest. All of the climbers are in good condition. The weather predictions ahead are not good and they will have to wait out the expected snowfall early next week.

Once the weather is good enough then they will establish a fourth camp at about 8000m. Then once there is another good opportunity they will make a summit push.
