Txikon arrives at K2 base camp

After a gruelling 8 hour hike, Alex Txikon has arrived at the base camp for K2. It snowed and was very cold getting there.

He compared the base camp compared to 2004 when he tried to climb K2. Back then there were many climbers. This time maybe only 15 were there. Amongst them is his climbing partner Gerfried Goeschl.

Txikon will be aiming to climb K2 and if he does so he will have climbed 3 8000m mountains in the Karakoram summer.
