Hari Mix heads back down K2

Hari Mix has decided to call it quits on this attempt up K2. He reached C2 on the Abruzzi Ridge yesterday. He said that it required serious effort to reach the camp. It took 9 hours. He said the last few hours had violent wind/ground blizzard.

Today he said he was feeling physically finer after that effort. But he said he wasn’t prepared to thread the needle for a summit attempt. What he means is that the weather window is so small that for him it is not worth the risk at this stage. He also said there are logistical problems. This would mean setting up C4 and all of the ropes that need to be laid yet.
