Goeschl reaches 7100m

Gerfried Goeschl has made it to camp 3 on K2 at about 7100m. He has been climbing with Alex Txikon but there were at least 11 climbers in all climbing from camp 2 to camp 3. It took them only 6.5 hours to get from camp 2 to 3. This gives an indication that the conditions are good for climbing on K2.

The climbing difficulty varied as to where they were. At times the snow was knee deep. But other times it was only ankle deep. The wind in previous days had blown much of the snow away.

Tomorrow they will head to camp 4 and the shoulder of K2. And then on Friday head towards the summit.
