O’Brien and Sigurjonsson either at summit or very near

July 28, 2017

The GPS of both Vanessa O’Brien and John Snorri Sigurjonsson have them within metres of K2’s summit. One would assume that they are there or minutes away from being at the summit.  Sigurjonsson has been recorded at a height of 8602m. K2 is 8611m high. O’Briens GPS heights have been less reliable. More information will be needed for her location.

So far they have climbed nearly 16 hours. They will want to get down as quick as possible if they have made the summit, before darkness. The part after the bottleneck seems to have taken the climbers much longer than they thought.
