Vanessa O’Brien reaches K2 base camp

Vanessa O’Brien has reached base camp on her 2017 attempt on K2. In 2015 her attempts of climbing the mountain were stopped by dangerous climbing conditions later in the season. In 2016 a huge avalanche stopped all climbers, including herself, from attempting the summit.

She is attempting to become the first woman from North America to climb K2. She holds dual passport for Britain and the USA.
