Belous to return home after frostbite

Vladimir Belous has been forced to leave the Russian expedition to K2 after suffering frostbite to his toes.

He was one of three climbers who got caught in a storm that hit camp 1 a few days ago. Vladimir Belous, Eugeny Vinogradsky and Alexey Bolotov were caught in a storm on Sunday and had little warning. Their tent ripped and gear started to be blown out. There was a risk that they too would be blown down the side of K2.

This has reduced the number of climbers on K2 to 8 for this Russian expedition.
