Today the climbers attempting the north ridge of K2 have remained at camp 1. It was the first day of good weather for some time. Maxut Zumayev saw an avalanche early in the morning from the camp.
Once they do start ascending it will be important that they reach camp 2 and not the intermediate camp in between camps 1 and 2. This passage in between the camps will be the most difficult of the route. There are snow ridges to contend with.
