“Looking at K2 during the summit push, while the night is still young.

“Little did we know that we’d have to abandon the attempt due to avalanches taking away whole portions of the fixed ropes beyond 7,500m”

29th July

“Arrived back at Camp I. Parched and exhausted. Seems like will have to push further on to find water.

“At the Japanese Camp I – almost down now. The mountain told us today what it is made of, we barely survived.
