Andrzej Bargiel has just bagged his expedition’s second goal: Today around 1 pm local time, the Polish ski mountaineer summited Laila Peak with partner JÄ™drek Baranowski. The pair then skied from 150m below the summit back to Base Camp.

“Because of difficult conditions, we couldn’t ski from the top,” said Bargiel.
