K2 Avalanche Tragedy & Survivors
Wow, this is really sad news on K2. No fun. Sounds like the weather finally broke and there were plenty of keeners on K2 this weekend. An avalanche broke below the 'Bottleneck' as 25 people were descending from the summit. Some were swept away in the avalanche, others died of frostbite, stranded on the mountain. 11 people died, and one is still awaiting rescue.
The BBC described it as the 'deadliest day in K2's history'.
