Posted: Jul 28, 2004 04:00 am EDT

An hour ago Horia Colibasanu called Romania over sat phone, confirming his success at K2 this morning.

Horia today became the first Romanian to bag K2, an amazing feat considering this was his first time above 8000 meter!

Horia came to K2 with friend Fane (Teodor Tulpan).
