Climbers head up K2 on a hopeful summit attempt

Many climbers have started the climb up K2. There is a fortunate weather window at the moment and they are hoping that it lasts at least till the 26th of this month. If it does then they are hopeful of reaching the summit.

Some climbers are already at camps 1 or 2 on the Abruzzi ridge.  Some others are taking an extra day in base camp before heading up. There have been reports of tents being destroyed in camps 1 and 2 after some wild weather in the last few days. The climbers will not know if their tents and gear are ok till they reach these camps.
