Possible changes to K2 in last number of years on Abruzzi Ridge

Fredrick Stangl has raised the possibility that there have been at least 2 mar or changes to K2 in the last number of years. 

Firstly he said that expeditions are now more wary of camp 3. Since there have been huge avalanches at C3 the last few years it is seen now as more of a dangerous area than before. Expeditions are now putting their camps below the original C3. The camps are also smaller. 

Also he mentions that the bottleneck may have changed too. He was to,d this by Mingma who said that since 2008 when there was the huge ice fall from the sera above it, it has become less steep and thus must be easier to climb.
