Breaking: Broad Peak Push aborted

Denis Urubko and his two teammates have retreated on Broad Peak after reaching 7,650m. “No ropes and a lot of crevasses,” Urubko wrote during a short break at Camp 3. “[Too] tired to break trail, too risky, not enough time.”

They expect to reach Base Camp tomorrow. He said nothing about the expedition being over. Rather, he added that this latest venture up-mountain has meant that everyone is now well-acclimatized, suggesting that a further attempt is likely.
