K2/Chogori Winter 2003

Editorial Comment: As we look back on Winter K2, what we see is a few great climbers who attempted K2 and stayed with the climb in conditions that most would not even consider climbing. We saw men pushing the limits of what is possible in climbing. We saw the efforts of real climbers going to where only a few climbers could. Krzysztof Wielicki and Denis Urubko showed to the world that they are some of the best climbers in the world today.

How dangerous is Winter K2? Some day, climbers will go back, if a group of climbers attempt the Summit push of K2 in Winter, one would be assured some will not return...

If you missed Winter K2 check here. We finish Winter K2 with three pages of wonderful pictures...

It is the first time that people have spent the winter there (K2).
