Polish winter expedition abandoned by lack of funds

A Polish expedition has abandoned plans to climb K2 in winter this season. There has been a lack of funds. This expedition would have been led by Krzysztof Wielicki. Desnivel is reporting that they would have needed about 160000 more euros to start this expedition. There is hope though that there will be an expedition by this group in 2017/2018.

K2 is the only 8000m mountain yet to have a winter ascent. There have been only 3 serious attempts on this mountain in the winter.

    Looking forward to following their assent. Is there a blog to get daily updates?

      That expedition could be later in the year. I would expect them to have more information as it gets closer to November and December this year
