No Word from K2

After some days without internet connection, Gelje Sherpa checked in from Camp 2 yesterday, before heading up on a last-minute summit push.

Conditions were reportedly tough, with high wind and snow falling.

“This will be hard but we don’t want to miss out an opportunity to try,” Gelje wrote.

However, he has not moved since yesterday, according to his tracker.

Strange silence on K2

Strangely, there is no news from K2. Grace Tseng’s social media team continues to add photos but gives no information about her current whereabouts.

The latest news, which came yesterday, stated that the team had aborted its summit push and were going down from Camp 3. (It is unknown if they tried to get any farther before turning around.)

By now, Tseng and her Sherpa guides should be back in Base Camp. They are supposed to leave the mountain tomorrow or Tuesday.
