Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner, Maxut Zumayev and Vassiliy Pivtsov have made camp 4 on the north ridge of K2 and may make an assault of the summit. The other 3 climbers in the expedition – Ralf Dujmovits,Tommy Heinrich and Darius Zaluski – have moved to lower camps.
The weather and snow conditions will determine whether they make a push or how far they go. Maxut mentioned that there was lots of snow to camp 4 at 8000m. However, he has also said that the route is in much better condition than in 2007.
This is a screen shot of where Maxut was at 7700m.
