Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner reaches K2 summit

At 1818 Gerlinde Kaltenbrunner made the summit of K2 the second highest mountain in the world. By doing so she has become the first woman to have made all 14 8000m mountains without oxygen. This was the fourth year that she has attempted K2.

Behind her were Maxut Zumayev and Vassily Pivtsov. Further behind them was Darek Zaluski.
