Update, Feb. 26: Both K2 teams are back in Base Camp due to high wind conditions. News expected later today from Nanga Parbat.
In a last-ditch effort to salvage expeditions stymied so far by wind and snow, teams are moving up K2 and Nanga Parbat, despite continuing bad weather.
Spaniard Alex Txikon and Nepali Cheppal Sherpa reached Camp 2 at 6,650m on K2 yesterday. “Weather is horrible, it’s bitter cold and windy,” Txikon said. “If conditions improve tomorrow, the rest of the team will join us here.”
