After reaching Camp IV and waiting for high winds to calm, Sophie and the rest of the K-2 team aborted their attempt and are descending to Base Camp after cleaing the route. A valiant try, but with no prospect of the winds diminishing, K-2 will remain unclimbed this year. No one has reached the summit since 2008 when 11 climbers died.
More news when the climbers reach Base Camp.
