K2: Seven Summit Treks Abandons Summit Push

Chhang Dawa Sherpa reports that the Seven Summit Treks climbers have abandoned their summit push.

On Instagram, Dawa wrote that “the entire team safely descended back to Camp 3, several of them approached 8,000m last night,” but there were no successful summits.

They will start their descent from Camp 3 toward Base Camp in the next few hours.

This failed summit push includes Pasang Norbu Sherpa, who had been attempting to shoot up the mountain in just 24 hours. His tracker shows him descending from Camp 3. Unconfirmed reports suggest that a problem with his O2 apparatus ended the speed record attempt.

No further word about Snorri and the Sadparas, or the Mohr/Lunger duo.
