Winter K2 Summmit Push Aborted

We are awaiting further details but can confirm that there was no summit push on K2 last night. Grace Tseng and the Dolma Outdoor team are descending.

On Everest, Jost Kobusch has also delayed his last push up the West Ridge. The German climber reached Camp 3, at 6,450m on the West Shoulder, two days ago. He had planned to climb higher last night. At the last minute, he changed his plans.

Photographer Daniel Hug, who is waiting for Kobusch at the base of the mountain, explained that Kobusch has “strategically moved the ascent to February 28.” It is not clear whether he intends to remain in Camp 3 in the meantime.
