Both Alex Txikon and Gerfried Goeschl have made it to camp 2 on K2. This is at a height of 6350m. He said that it was a difficult ascent to camp 2. But it took only 6 hours. There was good weather and almost no wind.
There are about 11 climbers at camp 2, he said. Tomorrow they will head to camp 3 at about 7000m. At the moment all is going to plan. He is on the same route he took in 2004.
Txikon is aiming to climb K2 and thus have climbed 3 8000m mountains during the summer. He would already be acclimatized after climbing the other 2 8000m mountains.
