Dangerous conditions forces Fredrik Strang and Polish team to abandon K2 summit attempt

Fredrik Strang has called from base camp to say that he has abandoned his attempt at the summit till there is another weather window. He said that the conditions were dangerous. The snow was deep and there were potential avalanches. Visibility was poor too. 

The following is from his Facebook page:

“They aborted the ascent at aprox. 7400 meters due to bad weather and dangerous conditions with little visibility, waist-deep snow and avalanches.”

Polish climbers also abandoned this attempt. 

It may mean that the only climbers there are from Destination Dreamers, who are going for the summit.
